Sanger to the Tennessee Valley Saturday, January 24, at 7 p.m. Sanger will be the second presenter in the Museum’s three-part Voices of Our Times lecture series, which began November 13, 2014, with a presentation by best-selling author
During his presentation “Around the World in 60 Minutes,” Sanger will speak to his personal experience with Huntsville and its successful defense industry. However, he will also address Huntsville’s preparedness in the face of changing and diverse global threats such as cyber security.
Voices series sponsor and PNC Regional President Brian Bucher stated: “PNC is committed to thoughtful engagement of the communities we serve. We are pleased to collaborate with the Huntsville Museum of Art once again with the Voices of Our Times lecture series, and we applaud their leadership in bringing such notable thought leaders to North Alabama.”
A 30-year veteran of The New York Times and a regular guest on CBS’ Face the Nation, Sanger has become known as one of the nation’s leading analysts of geopolitics, national security, and globalization. He has been a member of two Pulitzer Prize-winning teams and has been awarded numerous honors for national security and foreign policy coverage.
“The Huntsville Museum of Art was excited to secure David Sanger as part of our Voices series,” Christopher J. Madkour, Museum Executive Director, said. “His journalism experience and knowledge of current affairs and important issues facing our country and world today are sure to be relevant and enlightening for Huntsville residents to hear.”
Sanger is also the bestselling author of Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power.
