Norris’ extensive journalism background includes working for the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and ABC News. During her decade-long career as an ABC News correspondent, Norris received both Emmy and Peabody awards for her coverage of the Sept. 11 attacks.
Norris left ABC News in 2002 to host National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, public radio’s longest-running news magazine.
The program will begin at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 6:45 p.m., in the conference center’s Timken Great Hall. The lecture is free to the public, but tickets are required.
