Re: "Hardball" Anchor Chris Matthews to Speak at Johns Hopkins University

Chris Matthews, an MSNBC anchor and a former speech writer for President Jimmy Carter, will discuss "Crossing Borders: Looking Outward to a Connected World," at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. The lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing.

Matthews' speech is part of the 2002 Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, "Changing Times: Who are We? An Introspective Look at American Identity in the 21st Century," a student-run series examining the influence of various political, social and scientific advances on the collective American identity. The lecture, reception and book signing are free and open to the public.

Besides moderating the political talk show "Hardball" and participating in several other NBC News shows, Matthews is a nationally syndicated columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle. Prior to his career in television journalism, he spent 15 years as a print reporter, including a 13-year run as the Washington bureau chief for the San Francisco Examiner. Matthews also spent six years as the top aide for Speaker of the House Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill Jr., D-Mass. He has written three best-selling books and recently released his latest book, American: Beyond Our Grandest Notions.
