You know who we haven't seen a lot of lately? Dick Cheney. It seems as though the former Vice President went under the radar for a couple of years there, keeping his head down as the George W. Bush presidency faded a tiny bit into the past.

But Cheney is back, and on September 20, you can see him live and in person at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley. Cheney is on tour to promote his new memoir, "In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir" The book hit shelves today, and is a retelling from Cheney's perspective of his long career in politics, from the Watergate era all the way through the Bush administration.

Tickets for the event are $85, and include a book signing and lecture, as well as dinner. Cheney will be joined by his daughter, Elizabeth, with whom he collaborated to put the memoir together.
