Allan Sloan, senior editor-at-large for Fortune magazine and award-winning business journalist, will speak at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 9, in Kirkland Fine Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations required. Sloan will propose some common-sense solutions to the problems of a $16 billion federal budget deficit, rising entitlement expenses, our complex tax system and the divided, partisan national government.
Sloan’s appearance is this year’s 2013 T.W. Samuels Lecture. The lecture was created in 1977 in honor of attorney T.W. Samuels, senior partner in the Decatur law firm of Samuels, Miller, Schroeder, Jackson and Sly.
