Dr. Chris Leahy, professor of history, will lead a discussion focused on the facts on impeachment Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Penn Yan Public Library. The discussion, set to run from 2-3 p.m., will offer insights on impeachment, including its historical basis, constitutional significance, and the process it entails.
During the discussion, Dr. Leahy will share details from his forthcoming book on John Tyler, the 10th president of the U.S., who, in a little-known episode of our history, was the first American president to contend with the threat of impeachment.
Every American citizen should seek to inform themselves about the fundamental mechanisms of government, and draw conclusions about their use free from bias and misinformation.
The library is located at 214 Main St, Penn Yan, N.Y. 14527
