The King's College is pleased to welcome Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, to campus for a lecture on March 31 entitled “Abraham Lincoln and the American Idea.”
Lowry is the author of Lincoln Unbound and the New York Times bestseller Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years. Lowry began his career as a research assistant for Charles Krauthammer. In 1997, he was selected by William F. Buckley to lead National Review.
"I am delighted to address the students of The Kings College and discuss my book Lincoln Unbound,” said Lowry. “Lincoln is the foremost aspirational figure in American history and his lessons are particularly apt for today."
“Rich Lowry has led the flagship publication of American conservatism for almost twenty years,” said Dr. Matthew Parks, Assistant Professor of Politics at King's. “His recent book shows us Abraham Lincoln as the champion and embodiment of opportunity for all and an apt model for those who wish to reclaim that principle for the party of Lincoln. National Review has itself long rewarded talent wherever it finds it, including two recent King's alumnae who have worked for Mr. Lowry himself.”
In addition to serving as editor of National Review, Lowry is a syndicated columnist and a commentator for FOX News Channel. He writes for Politico and Time, and often appears on such public affairs programs as Meet the Press and The McLaughlin Group.
“It is always good to welcome Rich Lowry back to The King's College,” said Dr. David Innes, Associate Professor of Politics and Chair of the Program in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. “Lowry is the editor of National Review, a voice of sober American conservatism from within the Christian tradition, and the author of a recent book on Abraham Lincoln. We are excited to hear how he connects these things with 'the American idea.'"
Lowry will address the campus community on March 31 at 12:00pm in the City Room on the King's campus, located at 56 Broadway in downtown Manhattan. Tickets are free, but must be reserved via Eventbrite
