Talk – 'In the Room With David Hume Kennerly Featuring Jon Meacham,' Presented by Bank of America

Friday, October 11, 2019 - 7:00pm

Join us for this major evening event to celebrate Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer David Hume Kennerly's groundbreaking new relationship with the University. This event brings together two Pulitzer Prize winners: Kennerly and his good friend and former colleague at Newsweek, historian Jon Meacham. Together, they will probe the dynamic effect that only photography can have on the way we feel and understand our world.

Kennerly, former White House photographer and University of Arizona Presidential Scholar, has documented history for more than 50 years, creating iconic images of wars, politics, sports, celebrities and everyday life. Don't miss the exhibitions of Kennerly's photography that will be displayed throughout the UA Mall and Old Main.

Tickets for this event are free, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 6 p.m. on Oct. 11, the evening of the event. Proceed directly to the front doors of Centennial Hall to get your ticket.

Please note that this event will have mandatory bag checks before entering and occurs during Family Weekend, so you may want to allow extra time for parking.
