Political Commentator comes to give annual Kirby Lecture

Sara Davis, Correspondent

A conservative political commentator and best-selling author will be the guest speaker for this year’s Kirby Lecture at Wilkes University.
Columnist Jonah Goldberg will present the Allan P. Kirby Lecture in Free Entrepreneurship at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 3 in the Dorothy Dickson Darte Center.
The lecture is based on Goldberg’s newest book, “The Tyranny of Clichés – How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas,” which discusses liberal politicians and how their “clichés” have the potential to devastate America.
Following the lecture, Goldberg will have a book signing. The Wilkes-Kings’ bookstore, Barnes & Noble, will be selling books in the upper lobby of the Darte Center.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
The Allan P. Kirby Center Lecture Series holds two lectures per year, and invites individuals from the free enterprise and entrepreneurship field to the Wilkes University campus and Northeastern Pennsylvania.
“The Kirby Lecture offers students, campus staff/faculty and community members an opportunity to expose themselves to a wide variety of speakers with varied backgrounds and expertise in multitude of areas,” stated Rebecca Van Jura, director of special events at Wilkes University.
Goldberg is a New York Times and Amazon.com best-selling author, a member of the board of contributors to the USA Today, a founding editor of the National Review Online, a “Fox News All Star” on Special Report with Bret Baier, a political commentator on CNN and has received several awards, including the Lowell Thomas Award and the Conservative Political Action Conference Conservative Journalist of the Year award.
Goldberg has also made appearances on “Good Morning America,” “Nightline,” Hardball with Chris Matthews,” “The Daily Show,” “NBC Nightly News” and many other television and radio programs.
