Melanie Phillips, renowned British journalist, broadcaster and author, will visit Oklahoma City on Sunday, May 7. She will deliver a lecture, free and open to the public, at 6 p.m. at Armstrong Auditorium, on the campus of Herbert W. Armstrong in northern Edmond. No reservations are required.
Phillips is speaking in cities throughout America, giving her incisive perspective on turbulent global conditions. During her lecture at Armstrong, she will focus on the Arab-Israel impasse, which is under additional pressure because of recent developments in Palestinian politics and United Nations actions. She is widely regarded for her insights on social, political and geopolitical affairs.
Phillips’ weekly column, which currently appears in the Times of London, has been published over the years in the Guardian, Observer, Sunday Times and Daily Mail. She also writes for the Jerusalem Post and Jewish Chronicle, is a regular panelist on BBC Radio’s The Moral Maze, and speaks on public platforms throughout the English-speaking world.
Her best-selling book Londonistan, about the British establishment’s capitulation to Islamist aggression, was published in 2006. She followed this in 2010 with The World Turned Upside Down: the Global Battle Over God, Truth and Power. Her latest book is a personal and political memoir titled Guardian Angel.
The public lecture will be sponsored by the Philadelphia Trumpet newsmagazine, which is published from offices on the Armstrong College campus and has bureaus in Britain, Israel, Canada and Australia. The Trumpet staff has admired Phillips’ work for many years and is pleased to be able to present a forum for the local public to hear her speak.
