Mary Tucker Jasper Speaker Series

Thursday, November 10, 2022 6:00 - 9:00 pm EST

A CONVERSATION WITH MO ROCCA!

Join us on November 10th as we give a warm Hoosier welcome to CBS Sunday Morning television correspondent, humorist, history enthusiast and Emmy winner Mo Rocca.

Multi-talented Mo Rocca is the nationally acclaimed author of the book Mobituaries (inspired by his #1 hit podcast), host of The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation, and host and creator of the Cooking Channel’s My Grandmother’s Ravioli. He is also a frequent panelist on NPR’s hit weekly quiz show Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! Mo spent four seasons as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

This will be the Presidential Site’s 17th year celebrating American thought and leadership through this event. We will carry on our tradition of also honoring men and women in the United States military, who—like President Harrison—sacrificed so much in their service to our country, with special tributes throughout the evening.

National Thought Leadership

The Speaker Series supports the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site’s mission to increase participation in the American system of self-government by sharing the life stories, arts, and culture of an American President. Event proceeds help the Presidential Site share innovative civic education and outreach programs with more than 30,000 children and adults each year. The event annually welcomes 300 prestigious guests to enjoy a dinner and a nationally recognized speaker.

Past speakers include Brian Lamb, Iconic Political Cartoonists (Mike Luckovich, Michael Ramirez and Gary Varvel), Paula Kerger, Ron Chernow, Michael Beschloss, and Richard Norton Smith.

Interested in sponsoring this event? Please direct questions or concerns to VP of Development, Bethany Gosewehr: (317) 631-1888 or bgosewehr@bhpsite.org.

“The flag cannot stand for the benevolent policies of an administration. It stands for more permanent things — for things that changing administrations have no power to change.” Benjamin Harrison
