Fall Programming At Seward House Museum

Bridge Street

William Seward was no stranger to the importance of journalism and public life. He spent a lot of time talking with the press. Today, a century and a half later, the museum that honors the former secretary of state will welcome journalist Jamie Floyd to talk politics and the media today.

Floyd is an attorney and political analyst who hosts NPR’s “All Things Considered” on WNYC in New York. She will join a panel of local journalists from across Central New York to discuss journalism and politics today.

Maria Coleman is the Director of Development at the Seward House Museum and says that while times have changed, the conversations involving politics and journalism continues.

“I think the saying is true that the more things change, the more things stay the same,” she said. “During Seward’s time, he spent much of his life in the public life in dealing with the press and whether they were praising him or criticizing him especially over his famous Alaska Purchase,” she added.

The museum hopes to bridge the gap between the press from years past to today.

“All Things Considered,Really: An Evening With Jami Floyd” is happening on Saturday, November 2 at 6pm at the West End Theater in Auburn. Tickets are $10 for members and $15 for non members. To learn more about the Seward House and how you can learn more visit SewardHouse.org.
