Houston, We Have a Conference

National Review founder William F. Buckley Jr.

Dallas, too. On Tuesday, March 6 (Big D), and Wednesday, March 7 (Houston), the NR gang will be in Texas as part of National Review Institute’s cross-country “Remembering William F. Buckley Jr.” program to champion the Buckley Legacy as we mark the tenth anniversary of our founder’s death. In Houston, David French, Kevin Williamson, Rich Lowry, Lee Edwards (author of the acclaimed biography, William F. Buckley Jr.: The Maker of a Movement), and I will be discussing WFB’s life, his consequential legacy, and free speech — a big issue for Bill and for our movement. For more information about the Houston forum, click here.

The Dallas event is a little different. It will take place at the Debate Center at Old Parkland, and it will feature a debate, with David French and Jim Campbell taking on Lawrence Sager and Nelson Tebbe, over the Masterpiece Cakeshop case that is before the Supreme Court this term. Old Parkland is a beautiful setting for what is sure to be a truly invigorating forum. Do join us: Get complete information here.
