WICA again presents ‘Conversation on State of American Politics ’

Reporter Bill Plante to speak in Langley Sunday

Langley’s Whidbey Island Center for the Arts is once again presenting “Conversations on the State of American Politics.”

Veteran journalist and correspondent for CBS News, Bill Plante is this year’s speaker for the May 6 evening event, which has sold out in past years.

During his 52 years at CBS News, Plante reported from Washington, Saigon, Moscow, Berlin, Phnom Penh, and the American South during the voting rights marches of the mid-1960s. He covered the White House through the tenures of nine presidents and served several tours in Vietnam during the war.

Plante anchored the CBS Sunday Night News for seven years.

“Bill Plante is integrity wrapped in talent wrapped in grace,’’ Scott Pelley, current CBS anchor, said in a press release.

Limited seating is still available. All Seats $25. Piano Bar opens one hour before performance. For tickets call (360) 221-8268 or online at www.tickets.wicaonline.org
