Excerpt from preliminary interview last month

As Nashville Mayor Karl Dean prepared last month for his “Summons to Memphis” experience on Friday, June 6, from 11 a.m. o 1 p.m.. at the University of Memphis Holiday Inn, he found some interesting comparisons between his own and his host city and the relationship of each to the rest of Tennessee.

To put that another way (referencing one of the topics he mentions), what do Elvis and Jack Daniels have in common?

Mayor Dean’s appearance, sponsored by Memphis Magazine, is the second in the “Summons to Memphis” series sponsored by the magazine. Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans was the inaugural speaker last year.

Tickets to "Summons to Memphis" are $50 per person, and a table for 10 people may be reserved for $450. They can be purchased at summonstomemphis.com
