Representative Madeleine Korbel Albright will discuss her new book, "The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God and World Affairs" September 14 at a 7 p.m. public forum at the Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS) in Alexandria.

Albright became the first woman U.S. Secretary of State in 1997, serving in President Bill Clinton's administration. She was also U.S. representative to the United Nations and a member of Clinton's National Security Council. She has served on the National Cathedral Chapter in Washington D.C., and on the board of directors of the College of Preachers. She teaches at Georgetown University. Her autobiography, "Madame Secretary," became a bestseller.

A book signing and dessert reception will follow the discussion, set for Lettie Pate Evans Auditorium on the VTS campus.

Founded in 1823, VTS is the largest of the 11 accredited seminaries of the Episcopal Church. The school prepares men and women, who represent more than 40 dioceses and nine different countries, for service in the Church, both as ordained and lay ministers, and offers a number of professional degree programs and diplomas.
