On Feb. 26, the Atkinson Lecture Series will feature Andrew Sullivan, a writer and commentator NPR calls “one of the most widely read, influential and prolific political voices online.”
Smith Auditorium opens at 6:30 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. presentation, “Knowing (and Loving) Thine Enemy: Gays, Conservatives and Common Ground.”And here are some of Sullivan's own quick thoughts on it.
"Gays are fully part of our world and it is conservative to integrate them into mainstream society - through marriage equality and full access to military service," Sullivan writes. "Such reforms contribute to the conservative values of family, personal responsibility, mutual support, and service to a greater good. There is no contradiction here."
After the lecture, Sullivan will answer questions from the audience and sign copies of his books, which will be available for sale in the lobby.
Tickets are available online or in the Putnam University Center beginning Feb. 11. General admission tickets are $15. Students, faculty, staff can reserve one free ticket and buy additional tickets for $5. Alumni may purchase $10 tickets through The Compass.

11am-4pm Saturday February 16th 2013. The whole event is anchored around a "beer bus" which stops about once an hour at each brewery bringing people from one brewery to the next....Participating breweries are Santiam Brewing, Gilgamesh, Big Horn, Thompson's McMenamins and Pale Horse.Also coming in today is news about a holiday festival at the new Gilgamesh pub on December 2nd. There's two Beer Czars/Zaars now! We're not sure how many outside craft vendors there will be - but hey, it sounds like a great time. And the dueling names a sure sign the beer scene is growing and maturing.
