Silfen University Forum: March 19

March 13, 2012, Volume 58, No. 25

This year’s David and Lyn Silfen University Forum will consider the question Is America Broken? A Conversation on the 2012 Elections and Beyond. The Forum will take place on Monday, March 19 from 4:30-6 p.m. in Irvine Auditorium.

President Amy Gutmann will moderate the discussion with a distinguished group of experts including New York Times columnist Charles Blow; Penn associate professor of political science and NBC News election analyst John Lapinski; former White House speechwriter and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan; former Philadelphia Mayor and Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell and former US Senator Alan Simpson. “After what is sure to be a stimulating conversation, our panelists will field questions from the audience,” Dr. Gutmann added. 

General admission tickets are available at the Annenberg Box Office through March 16. Admission is free for all faculty, staff and students with a PennCard.

For those who cannot attend the event in person, a live webcast will be available on the Silfen Forum website at www.upenn.edu/silfenforum/webcast.html
