The collegial chat about the Missouri Democrat’s autobiography, “Plenty Ladylike,” is scheduled to take place in the Dorothy Betts Marvin Theatre at GW’s Marvin Center (800 21st St. NW) beginning at 7 p.m. This event is part of the ongoing Newsmakers Series, a joint effort of Politics & Prose and GWU.  

“It’s not every day that we have two sitting senators on stage together,” an organizer said of the groundbreaking pol-on-pol interaction. Neither Team McCaskill nor staff at Politics & Prose was able to explain to HOH exactly how the freshman New Jersey Democrat got roped into playing interviewer, but the newly minted author sure seemed to be having fun with the unusual arrangement.
