Radio Journalist Mara Liasson is coming to Park!

It has been a semester of amazing events and programs, and we're not finished yet:

Mara Liasson, the national political correspondent for National Public Radio, will be on campus Thursday, April 7, as this year's Jessica Savitch Distinguished Journalism Lecturer.

Liasson will present a public lecture entitled, "A View From Washington: Covering Hot-Button Issues." The lecture is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. in the Park Auditorium. Seating will be limited, so please arrive early.

Mara Liasson provides extensive coverage of politics and policy from Washington, DC -- focusing on the White House and Congress -- and also reports on political trends beyond the Beltway. Prior to her current assignment, Liasson was NPR's White House correspondent for all eight years of the Clinton administration.

Prior to joining NPR in 1985, Liasson was a freelance radio and television reporter in San Francisco. She was also managing editor and anchor of California Edition, a California Public Radio nightly news program, and a print journalist for The Vineyard Gazette in Martha's Vineyard.
