The Oregon Historical Society's Mark O. Hatfield Distinguished Historians Forum for 2013 features Isabel Wilkerson, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of "The Warmth of Other Suns," April 16.

Other big wigs in history participating in the event's 15th year include local journalist Brent Walth; Time Magazine chief political correspondent Michael Duffy, co-author of "The Presidents Club: Inside the World's Most Exclusive Fraternity"; President Dwight D. Eisenhower's grandson David Eisenhower, author of "Eisenhower: At War;" and Seattle author Erik Larson, author most recently of "In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin."

"Senator Hatfield was always a proponent for history and learning, which is why he was driven to begin this series," say OHS Executive Director, and friend to the Senator, Kerry Tymchuk.  "It is our honor to be able to carry on this important tradition, and we are excited to welcome these remarkable authors to Portland this coming spring"

All Portland lectures begin at 7 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 1126 SW Park Ave. 

Series tickets start at $72, and are on sale now at BoxOfficeTickets.com.  Learn more about the series at WWW.OHS.ORG.
