On Thursday Night, TU's Presidential Lecture Series Presents Columnist George Will
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, OK – On today's show, we hear from the award-winning conservative columnist, author, and commentator George Will, who writes regularly for Newsweek and The Washington Post, and who will deliver a free-to-the-public lecture on Thursday the 2nd at 7:30pm in the Gussman Concert Hall of the Lorton Performance Center. Will is appearing as the keynote speaker in the University of Tulsa's Presidential Lecture Series, which is sponsored by the Darcy O'Brien Endowed Chair. Now 70, Will --- a longtime conservative who won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1976, and who's also the nation's most widely read political columnist --- is likewise a prolific author with books on topics ranging from baseball to public policy to American society. He's also been a TV-pundit mainstay on ABC News since the early 1980s.
