The Ashbrook Center is pleased to announce that Wall Street Journal columnist and bestselling author, Peggy Noonan, will be the keynote speaker for the 36th John M. Ashbrook Memorial Dinner on Wednesday, April 24.

Peggy Noonan is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the Wall Street Journal and bestselling author of nine books on American politics, history, and culture.

A current political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, Ms. Noonan also served as a Special Assistant and speechwriter to President Ronald Reagan. In the Reagan White House, she worked alongside the President on speeches that span the 40th anniversary of D-Day, the Challenger disaster, and his Farewell Address.

As Ashbrook celebrates the 40th anniversary of President Reagan’s inaugural speech at the John M. Ashbrook Memorial Dinner, we are honored to welcome Ms. Noonan as the keynote speaker.

The Ashbrook Memorial Dinner is a scholarship fundraising event supporting undergraduate students in the Ashbrook Scholar Program—a program that aims to cultivate the knowledge, character, and judgment necessary for good leadership in a constitutional republic.

Sponsorship opportunities are available and include preferred table location as well as tickets for a VIP Reception and photo opportunity with Ms. Noonan.
