Former presidential candidate John Edwards is preparing to address an audience of students in Providence, Rhode Island.
It's one of his first public appearances since his admission of infidelity last summer.
The Tuesday night talk is titled "Beautiful America" and is hosted by the Brown University's lecture board.
Edwards was John Kerry's running mate in 2004 and ran again last year, before abandoning his bid during the Democratic primaries.
The former North Carolina senator acknowledged last August that he had an affair in 2006 with a woman, Rielle Hunter, who was hired to produce videos of him as he plotted a second bid for the White House.
Edwards has had limited public appearances since then.
