The 8th Annual Sanrda J. Skolnik Lecture on Early Care and Education with Nicholas Kristof will be held in LeClerc Auditorium at Notre Dame of Maryland University from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on October 30, 2017.
A New York Times columnist, Kristof has written extensively about the crucial need for early childhood education and it’s economic impact on communities, bipartisan approaches to supporting children, pre-K, and poverty. With his wife, he has written several books, most recently A Path Appears about how to make a difference in the world. Their previous book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, was a No. 1 best seller. His column appears every Sunday and Thursday.
After joining The New York Times in 1984, initially covering economics, he served as a Times correspondent in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo. He also covered presidential politics and is the author of the chapter on President George W. Bush in the reference book “The Presidents.” He later was Associate Managing Editor of the Times, responsible for Sunday editions. Kristof won Pulitzer Prizes for his coverage of Tiananmen Square and the genocide in Darfur. He was The New York Times’s first blogger and is one of the very few Americans to be at least a two-time visitor to every member of the so-called “Axis of Evil.” During his travels, he has had unpleasant experiences with malaria, mobs and an African airplane crash.

A shuttle bus will be available to transport you to LeClerc Auditorium. We look forward to you participation in this very popular lecture.
