Wall Street Journal Deputy Editorial Page Editor Daniel Henninger and Fox News political analyst, Juan Williams will join Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and a panel of conservative opinion leaders to discuss the meaning of Americanism, at the Park Hyatt Hotel from 9.30 a – 11.30 a on Wednesday, May 11th.  The event is being hosted by Hudson Institute’s Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, and National Affairs.

Inspired by new anthology “What So Proudly We Hail: The American Soul in Story, Speech, and Song,” the panel will discuss national identity, the American character, the virtues and aspirations of civic life, and the problem with making a national one out of the multicultural many.

RSVPs have closed due to “overwhelming demand” but you can watch the event live here.

CBS News will broadcast a town hall with President Obama the morning of Wednesday, May 11. The town hall will be held at the Newseum in Washington DC, and will be moderated by “Early Show” co-anchor Erica Hill and “Face the Nation” moderator Bob Schieffer.

A live audience will ask questions focusing on the economy, with CBS News Business and Economics Correspondent Rebecca Jarvis facilitating questions.

The town hall will be broadcast during the 8 AM hour of the “Early Show,” the following day, May 12, with excerpts appearing the evening of May 11 on the “CBS Evening News” and “Face the Nation” the following Sunday. In addition, the entire event will be streamed unedited on CBS News’ YouTube page  and on CBSNews.com.

Update: CBS will host a town hall about the economy with leading Republicans, next month.
