The event will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in Ministers’ Hall, and is free and open to the public.

In Blessed Experiences, Clyburn tells in his own inspirational words how an African-American boy from the Jim Crow South was able to beat the odds to achieve great success and become, as President Barack Obama describes him, “one of a handful of people who, when they speak, the entire Congress listens.” Clyburn will greet attendees and sign copies of his book, which will be available on site for $34.95.
