About this Event

Meelya Gordon Memorial Lecture

Renowned for his “ability to combine high thinking with a shrewd capacity to understand day-to-day American politics,” (The Economist) Pulitzer Prize winner George F. Will has written a nationally syndicated column at The Washington Post for the past 45 years. His many books include The Conservative Sensibility, Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball, and One Man's America: The Pleasures and Provocations of Our Singular Nation. Will is the winner of the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, two Silurian Awards for editorial writing, and the Order of Lincoln award from his home state of Illinois. In American Happiness and Discontents, Will addresses such varied topics as American socialists, anti-capitalist conservatives, drug policy, the criminal justice system, climatology, the Coronavirus, the First Amendment, the composition of the federal judiciary, the morality of watching football, and so much more.

Masks are required at all times while in the building.

Books will be available for purchase at the library and a book signing will follow the presentation.
