TWU brings in national political journalists for lecture series

Two journalists who cover the White House for national news outlets will swing through Denton later this month for Texas Woman's University's third annual Jamison Lecture.

The free event, titled "Covering the Trump Presidency: Perspectives from Women Journalists," will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, in the Multipurpose Classroom Laboratory auditorium, located on North Bell Avenue on the TWU campus. 

Featured speakers Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post and a MSNBC senior political analyst, along with Sabrina Siddiqui, a political reporter for the U.S. edition of The Guardian. Krys Boyd, host of KERA's "Think" radio program, will moderate the panel.

Before landing at The Washington Post, Parker covered Washington politics for The New York Times. Siddiqui covered presidential elections for The Huffington Post and Bloomberg News
before going to work for The Guardian. 

The lecture is funded through a $1.7 million donation from the estate of Alonzo and Elizabeth Jamison. Alonzo Jamison taught at the university for 16 years and passed away in 2011. Elizabeth Jamison received her bachelor's degree in music from TWU and died in 2009.
