Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - Tuesday, October 24, 2017Wyly Auditorium, Louisiana Tech University, Ruston, LA

On Tuesday, October 24th at 4 p.m. in Wyly Auditorium, The Waggonner
Center will have its next event, "Journalism and Politics in the Pelican State, 2017." We
will gather together five of the state's leading political journalists (Greg Hilburn/USA
Today; Jeremy Alford/; Elizabeth Crisp/The Advocate; Melinda Deslatte/AP; and
Julia O'Donoghue/Times-Picayune) for a timely discussion on the first two years of the
John Bel Edwards's administration, their thoughts on the next two years, the upcoming
legislative session, as well as how all this will likely affect Louisiana's citizens (especially its college-age population).

Please join us for what promises to be a lively discussion! The event is free and open to the public, and questions from the audience are both welcome and encouraged.
