Goucher College President Sandy J. Ungar will give the introduction for this public program on Thursday, April 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the Central Library's Poe Room at 400 Cathedral St. in Baltimore.

One of our nation's leading journalists, Michael Kinsley has been editor of The New Republic, an editor at Harper's and the Economist. He founded Slate and now writes a column for Time.

Kinsley's new book, Please Don't Remain Calm: Provocations and Commentaries, is a collection of his editorial writing since 1995, covering the end of the Clinton era through the two terms of President George W. Bush. In addition to political essays, Kinsley also writes about the future of newspapers, the existence of God, and why powerful women love Law and Order.

The program is sponsored by The Enoch Pratt Society and The Pratt Contemporaries.
