PBS Newhour anchor Jim Lehrer is coming to Indiana University on April 13 to speak about the 2012 election campaign and Presidential debates. The topics are also discussed in his new book, “Tension City: Inside the Presidential Debates, from Kennedy-Nixon to Obama-McCain.”

During his visit, the Center on Congress and the Institute for Advanced Study plan to present Lehrer with the Hamilton Public Service Fellowship. Lehrer will be the first recipient of the award, which was created in 2010 in honor of former Indiana Congressman Lee Hamilton.
