Dear Friends of the Hauenstein Center:

Christopher and Peter Hitchens -- brothers and rivals -- will debate in Fountain Street Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Learn more.
As you wrap up your work week, please take notice of four opportunities at the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies at Grand Valley State University.

(1) Hitchens v. Hitchens tickets are for sale beginning at 10:00 this morning. Christopher and Peter Hitchens -- brothers, rivals, and renowned political and cultural commentators -- will meet on stage for the first time ever to debate everything under the sun... and much beyond. Don't miss this earth-shattering event on April 3, 2008, at Fountain Street Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Beginning at 10 AM, you may purchase tickets to the event through Star Tickets Plus. Visit our website to learn more.
(2) Award winning historian H. W. Brands will be in town as a Hauenstein Center scholar in residence from March 10-12. There is still time to sign up and attend all six of Brand's lectures on the American presidency.
(3) Remember to vote in the second round of the Hauenstein Center's third annual Tournament of the Presidents. This year we are asking voters to decide which former U.S. president should be the next president's greatest guide (regardless of party affiliation). More than 1,100 voters determined the outcome of round 1.
(4) Our YouTube site has a new look, as of yesterday, and plenty of new content. Visit the Hauenstein Center on YouTube to watch Doris Kearns Goodwin talk about Abraham Lincoln's leadership at the Lincoln Bicentennial national kickoff event; Bill Barker talk about Thomas Jefferson's political philosophy and religious beliefs; and Kasey Pipes talk about Dwight Eisenhower's role in the American civil rights movement.
