Politics, Policy, and Reality: What’s Really Going on in Washington

“Shouting is a good way to foment conflict, but it’s not the best way to inform.” – Gwen Ifill

As managing editor of PBS’ Washington Week, Gwen Ifill shapes and directs news coverage for one of the most iconic public affairs programs on television. A respected journalist, author and sought-after debate moderator, Ifill brings her veteran experience and trademark wit to bear on the day’s political headlines. In a lively presentation rife with insight and wisdom gained from years of covering the toughest beats in Washington, Ifill will give audiences the benefit of her work on American politics, foreign policy and the trends that most affect business, family and government.

Books will be available for purchase and signing

Co-presented with the Global & International Studies Program and the Orfalea Foundation’s Support for Global and International Studies.
