Sullivan to speak on religion and politics
Posted October 12, 2008; 11:44 p.m.
"The Party Faithful? Why Obama Started Hanging Out With Rick Warren and Republicans Stopped Going to Church" is the title of a lecture to be presented at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 13, in 10 Guyot Hall.
Amy Sullivan, nation editor at Time magazine, will deliver the address, which is sponsored by the University's Center for the Study of Religion. She is the author of "The Party Faithful: How and Why Democrats Are Closing the God Gap," published earlier this year.
Sullivan's work has appeared in publications including the Los Angeles Times, The New Republic, The New York Times and The Washington Post, and was included in "The Best Political Writing 2006." She is a frequent guest on radio and television talk shows. Previously, Sullivan served as editor of The Washington Monthly.
Before embarking on her journalism career, Sullivan served as an aide to U.S. Sen. Tom Daschle and helped found -- and served as editorial director of -- the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.
