Event description

Description

Mark your calendar for an extraordinary evening with the Presidential Site!

The Mary Tucker Jasper Speaker Series supports the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site’s mission to increase participation in the American system of self-government by sharing the life stories, arts, and culture of an American President. Event proceeds help the Presidential Site share innovative civic education and outreach programs with more than 29,000 children and adults each year. The event annually welcomes 300 prestigious guests to enjoy a dinner, nationally recognized speaker, and the presentation of the Advancing American Democracy Award.

This year’s program - ICONS OF POLITICAL ART - will feature Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonists Michael Ramirez and Mike Luckovich, and Robert F. Kennedy Excellence in Journalism award winner Gary Varvel. Join honorary chairs Myrta Pulliam and Russ Pulliam as we celebrate these legendary cartoonists and the remarkable role their work has had in American civic and political life. Past speakers include Paula Kerger, Ron Chernow, Brian Lamb, Michael Beschloss, and Richard Norton Smith.
