Gingrich To Address New(t) School

Nevermind the former president’s stacked speaking engagements — Clinton-era Republicans are in demand, too:


Wednesday, September 13, 6:00 p.m.

The New School, Theresa Lang Community and Student Center

55 West 13th Street (near Sixth Avenue), 2nd floor

WHO: Newt Gingrich was speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1994 until 1998. His “contract with America” helped Republicans achieve massive congressional victories and secure a majority in the House for the first time in forty years. Currently, he is chairman of the Gingrich Group, a communications and consulting firm that launched in 2003 the Center for Health Transformation. Since October 2004, Gingrich has co-chaired with New School president Bob Kerrey the National Commission for Quality Long-term Care. Now officially housed at The New School, the commission is developing a national policy agenda for the improvement of long-term healthcare.

WHAT: Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy presents a public conversation with Newt Gingrich. An expert on healthcare, military issues, international affairs, and world history, Gingrich will discuss how real change can help the poor, the powerless, and those left out of the American dream. He will draw heavily upon the argument of his best-selling 2005 book, Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract With America.

ADMISSION INFO: Admission is free, but reservations are required. To reserve a seat, call 212.229.5400 x1482.
