Oklahoma City Community College will host author and three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas Friedman at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 27, 2017, in the college’s Visual and Performing Arts Center Theater. The event is free and open to the public.
Friedman, who has served as a foreign affairs columnist for The New York Times since 1995, will discuss trends shaping the world today, global forces driving change in the Middle East, as well as his latest book, “Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations.”
Friedman is renowned for his direct reporting and sophisticated analysis of complex issues. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting in 1983 for his coverage of the Israeli invasion of Beirut, in 1988 for balanced and informed coverage of Israel, and in 2002 for commentary on the worldwide impact of the terrorist threat.
This event is part of the Paul Sechrist Signature Lecture Series.
