Three weeks before the 2012 presidential election, Pulitzer Prize-winning political columnist George F. Will will share his insights into the election and the country's political landscape at Whitworth University's annual President's Leadership Forum.
He'll speak as part of the President's Leadership Forum at 7:30 a.m. on Oct. 16 at the Spokane Convention Center.
"George Will's appearance will provide up-to-the-minute commentary on the upcoming general election, and I'm sure people will appreciate his thoughtful and experienced perspectives," said Whitworth president Beck A. Taylor in a news release.
Will's newspaper column has been syndicated by The Washington Post since 1974, and it appears twice weekly in roughly 400 newspapers in the U.S. and Europe. In 1976, Will became a regular contributing editor of Newsweek magazine, for which he writes a bimonthly essay.
According to a Whitworth news release, the President's Leadership Forum series brings to downtown Spokane "speakers who represent a broad range of voices, perspectives and ideas. Whitworth faculty and staff are confident that Christian worldviews and the ideas of Christian thinkers are sharpened by rigorous and open intellectual inquiry and by engagement with the broadest spectrum of thought. This confidence motivates Whitworth to lead the way in inviting speakers to Spokane who can help our community engage in critical and careful thinking, civil discourse and effective action."
