New York Times Correspondent David Sanger Returns to Weston
Coming to the area fresh from his front page coverage of the Iran nuclear deal, New York Times chief Washington correspondent David Sanger will return to the Weston Playhouse to present a special lecture titled ‘Curbing Chaos: Iran, the Islamic State and Other Challenges to American Power.’ Tickets to the event include Sanger’s talk followed by a moderated audience question and answer session and a dessert reception afterward offering the opportunity to meet, mingle and discuss.
Sanger has reported from New York, Tokyo and Washington for 32 years, covering issues surrounding foreign policy, globalization, nuclear proliferation and Asian affairs. He is the author of two bestsellers – ‘The Inheritance: the World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power’ and ‘Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power.’ A member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Aspen Strategy Group, Sanger specializes in the confluence of economic and foreign policy, and has written extensively on how issues of national wealth and competitiveness have come to redefine the relationships between the United States and its major allies. He has twice been a member of Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting teams at The New York Times.
Join Sanger and Weston chair emeritus Wayne Granquist on Sunday, August 16, at 7:30 p.m. for a stimulating and participatory discussion of current political issues and events.
Proceeds from tickets, $35, will benefit the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company. Reserve your spot at westonplayhouse.org or call 802- 824-5288.
