The Junior League of York Presents
Charles Krauthammer for 25th
“In the Spotlight” Speaker Series

An evening on February 26, 2014, with Pulitzer Prize winner, syndicated columnist and FOX News commentator, and author of Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics

YORK, Pa., December 6, 2013 – The Junior League of York, Pennsylvania is proud to present its 25th "In the Spotlight" Speaker Series event, featuring Charles Krauthammer on Wednesday, February 26, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. at The Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and named by The Financial Times as the most influential commentator in America, Charles Krauthammer has been honored from every part of the political spectrum for his bold and original writing—from the famously liberal People for the American Way (which presented him their First Amendment Award) to the staunchly conservative Bradley Foundation (which awarded him their first $250,000 Bradley Prize). Since 1985, Krauthammer has written a syndicated column for The Washington Post for which he won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary. It is published weekly in more than 400 newspapers worldwide. Krauthammer is a contributing editor to The Weekly Standard and a weekly panelist on Inside Washington. He is also a contributor to FOX News, appearing nightly on FOX's evening news program, Special Report with Bret Baier.

During the event, Mr. Krauthammer will cover the political landscape in Washington as well as key messages and stories from his recent book, a #1 New York Times Best Seller, Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics.
