This is the third year NLP has presented programs at Whitman about politics, public policy and the press. Last year’s event, which drew an audience of more than 900, featured columnists David Brooks of The New York Times and E.J. Dionne Jr. of The Washington Post and moderator Jessica Yellin of CNN discussing “Demosclerosis: The Challenge of Moving America Forward in a Hyper-Partisan Age.”
