You’ve seen him on CBS and HDNet . Soon, you’ll see him live at the Library – and on YouTube. On June 20, 2012, the Library's public conversation with legendary anchorman Dan Rather will be livestreamed to viewers around the world at youtube.com/kclibrary .
The stream begins at 6:30 p.m. CST, as Rather joins Library Director Crosby Kemper III for a discussion of his new book, Rather Outspoken: My Life in the News  before an expected capacity crowd in Kirk Hall at the Central Library. (RSVP and come early to attend .)
It should be a lively discussion. The 80-year-old newsman’s tell-all memoir has been drawing attention for his lambasting of his former employer, CBS News, whom he’s accused of folding under corporate pressure and exhibiting an “absence of executive backbone” during crucial investigations, such as Abu Ghraib. Check out Lloyd Grove’s great coverage of the book in The Daily Beast .
