Subject: 	Late-Summer Update from ESU Washington

As August segues into September, we're pleased to call your attention to 
a number of coming attractions, among them (a) a remarkable Shakespeare 
on Screen series at the Library of Congress, (b) a September 18 luncheon 
with Laura Sessions Stepp, an award-winning Washington Post reporter who 
has stimulated a great deal of soul-searching with her book Unhooked: 
How Young Women Pursue Sex, Delay Love, and Lose at Both, (c) a 
September 27 reception and conversation with historian Douglas L. 
Wilson, who'll talk about his prize-winning study of Lincoln's Sword: 
The Presidency and the Power of Words, (d) an October 2 luncheon with 
biographer Lynne Olson, who will discuss her much-admired narrative 
about Troublesome Young Men: The Rebels Who Brought Churchill to Power 
and Saved England, and (e) an October 11 luncheon with two of our 
leading lexicographers, Paul Dickson, who has produced more than a score 
of books about slang, technical jargon, and other special vocabularies, 
and Fred Shapiro, who has revolutionized our sense of what constitutes a 
familiar quotation.

classics from its enormous archive of film, television, and recorded 
stage performances. For a complete schedule of the screen features to be 
shown free of charge between now and the end of August, visit
