Salem State announces upcoming speakers

Continue reading below

Salem State University recently announced the lineup for its annual speaker series. Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker, who is expected to run for US Senate next year, will deliver the spring lecture on April 7. Award-winning playwright and author Tony Kushner will be the fall speaker on Nov. 13. Participating in an on-stage interview with Kushner will be Robin Young, host of WBUR radio’s “Here & Now” show. Begun in 1982, the popular Salem State Series features twice-a-year lectures, many by nationally and internationally known figures, including best-selling authors, political leaders, and sports legends. The lectures are normally held at the university’s O’Keefe Sports Complex in Salem. But this year, Booker’s presentation will be held at Lynn Memorial Auditorium in Lynn City Hall. “The move to Lynn’s spacious and beautifully renovated auditorium represents an opportunity to move our public lecture program out into the community and make it more accessible to audience members from Boston and up into Cape Ann,” Cynthia McGurren, executive director of the Salem State University Foundation, which manages the series, said in a prepared statement. The move also enables subscribers and others to avoid construction at the O’Keefe Sports Center as the university builds its new fitness and wellness center, college officials said. Kushner’s presentation will be at the O’Keefe Center.
