    The Dean of the White House Press Corps is coming to the National Museum of American History here in Washington, DC.

    Helen Thomas, who has covered 10 U.S. presidents, will greet museum visitors and sign her latest book this spring and summer.
    Thomas and co-author Craig Crawford, columnist for CQ-Roll Call have written the book Listen Up, Mr. President: Everything You Always Wanted Your President to Know or Do.
    Thomas is currently a Hearst Newspapers columnist, but she was the first female officer of the National Press Club, the first female and president of the White House Correspondents Association and the first female member of the Gridiron Club.
    She is the only member of the White House press corps to have her own chair in the White House Press Room.  All other chairs are assigned to media outlets. For more information on the book signing visit the National Museum of American History's website.
