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.
