When longtime Washington Post editorial page editor and Newsweek columnist Meg Greenfield died in 1999, friends and colleagues learned that she’d left behind an almost-completed book detailing her observations of the nation’s capital. Several of those friends and colleagues come together to remember Meg Greenfield and to present her now-published final work, Washington, published by Public Affairs.

Guests
