Times Journalist Returns to Weston
David Sanger, national security correspondent for The New York Times, returns to the Weston Playhouse on Sunday, August 17, at 7:30 p.m., for a special lecture, ‘Obama and His Adversaries: from Russia to China to the Middle East.’ Sanger, one of the country’s foremost political journalists, will discuss the President’s relationships with world leaders and political groups, and America’s challenges in some of the most dangerous regions of the world. The event will be moderated by Weston’s chair emeritus, Wayne Granquist.
Sanger’s appearances at the Playhouse have become a tradition. Audiences have flocked to hear his insider commentary on everything from confrontations with Iran and North Korea to the future of Afghanistan and Pakistan and efforts to stem the financial crisis. This year’s evening will no doubt reveal much about the U.S. position in the world, as perceived by allies and adversaries, both within Washington and around the globe. Sanger has written two books on U.S. foreign policy, and is the recipient of numerous awards. He appears regularly on PBS and NPR.
Proceeds benefit the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company. A dessert and wine reception will follow. Tickets are $35 and are available at 802-824-5288 or westonplayhouse.org.
