Newsweek Editor Jon Meacham, who was in St. Louis Nov. 8 to speak at the annual Founders Day gala, shakes hands with senior Ben Sales, Student Life senior news editor, after an informal session greeting students in Wilson Hall. Meacham took questions from the students — about 80 gathered to meet him — and spent time talking to many of them individually. At the Founders Day dinner that night, his talk centered on leadership, the new political landscape and his recent book, “Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship.”
