A mix of politicians, writers, historians and celebrities will participate in a dramatic reading of the U.S. Constitution at the Newseum at noon Sunday. The event, sponsored by People For the American Way Foundation, will be held in a television studio in the museum and broadcast on a big screen in the building's Great Hall.
Those interested in attending should use the 6th Street entrance of the building, which is located at 555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.
