The West Liberty University Economics Club Lecture Series continues this month with Charles Kesler, an Oak Hill native and senior fellow of the Claremont Institute.

The presentation will take place at noon at River City, located at 1400 Main St. in Wheeling. It is open to the public.

Kesler is editor of the Claremont Review of Books and also professor of government at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, Calif.

Kesler received his bachelor's degree in social studies and then his master and doctoral degrees in government all from Harvard University. He was selected in June of 2000 as a member of The Scholars Commission on the Jefferson-Hemmings Issue, sponsored by The Thomas Jefferson Heritage Society.

Kesler's wife, Sally Pipes, is president of the Pacific Research Institute, and she addressed the University Economics Club in 2011.

Kesler is editor of "Saving the Revolution: The Federalist Papers and the American Founding," and co-editor, with William F. Buckley, Jr., of "Keeping the Tablets: Modern American Conservative Thought."

He also regularly contributes to the opinion pages of The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times.
