Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss Walter Cronkite "the most trusted man in America" with Larry Bounds, assistant Artistic Director of Chautauqua who will perform as Walter Cronkite, in the June Festival. This event is NOT a costumed performance.
How did a man from Missouri and Texas, plain spoken, thoughtful, and with a twinkle in his eye become the voice of truth to all America and an icon of journalistic integrity? How has journalism changed since Cronkite covered World War II, Vietnam, JFK's assassination and the Space Race? How does the way we report our news affect the making of our history?
Larry Bounds is an AP English teacher at award-winning Wade Hampton High School and has taught broadcast journalism. He has performed in Chautauqua as Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Harry Houdini, Walt Disney, Davy Crockett, and Wernher von Braun.
At Thornblade Park Apartments in Greer, South Carolina, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
