LA PLUME – Keystone College will celebrate Constitution Day by hosting national political reporter and author Salena Zito on Monday, Sept. 17, at 7:15 p.m. in Evans Hall in Hibbard Campus Center. The event, part of Keystone’s Community Forum series, is free and open to the public.
Zito is a national political reporter for the Washington Examiner and the New York Post and a CNN contributor. She is author of the book, “The Great Revolt: Inside the Populist Coalition Reshaping American Politics,” which discusses Donald Trump’s election as president and whether it represents a fundamental shift in the electorate which will affect both the Republican and Democratic parties for years to come. She is a regular guest on the CBS News show “Face the Nation.” This will be her second appearance at Keystone’s Constitution Day celebration.
Zito’s visit will feature her opening remarks followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience and then a book signing at approximately 8:15 p.m.
In her book, co-authored with political consultant Brad Todd, Zito reports on interviews with voters in five swing states following the 2016 presidential election.
“We’re look forward to welcoming Salena Zito to campus to help us celebrate Constitution Day on September 17,” Keystone political science professor Jeff Brauer said in a news release. “Ms. Zito’s book offers a unique insight into the changing nature of the American electorate in the 2016 election and beyond.”
Constitution Day, which takes place across the nation, on Sept. 17, celebrates the signing of the United States Constitution and what it means to American democracy.
