The fourth annual Cocktails with Clio will take place on 7 November 2013. Named for the muse of history, this festive evening celebrates American history and the 222-year-old mission of the Society. Following an elegant cocktail buffet at the Society’s building, guests will proceed to the nearby Harvard Club for dessert and a conversation with political commentator, author, and MHS Overseer Cokie Roberts. As the evening progresses, Ms. Roberts will discuss her approach to writing bestselling books about history and historical figures, her work as a political commentator, and how she has used MHS collections in her research.
Tickets cost $250 per person. All net proceeds from the event will support the Society's outreach efforts.
