Michael Medved to inaugurate School of Law's Bowes-Madison Distinguished Speaker series

Author, film critic and nationally syndicated radio talk show host Michael Medved will be the inaugural speaker for the law school's new Joan E. Bowes-James Madison Distinguished Speaker Series on Nov. 15.

Michael Medved

He will speak on "Media vs. Civilization: How the Messages of the Entertainment Industry Undermine the Foundations of a Free and Ordered Society."

Medved's talk is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Peace and Justice Theatre in the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice on the USD campus.

Medved hosts a daily, nationally syndicated radio talk show, broadcast in more than 160 cities to more than 2 million listeners. He served for 12 years as co-host of "Sneak Previews," the weekly movie review show on PBS TV, and for five years as chief film critic for the New York Post. He is the author of nine nonfiction books, and his new book, "Right Turns: 40 Unconventional Lessons from a Controversial Life," is scheduled for release by Crown/Random House in January 2005.

The new distinguished speaker series was established and is made possible by a generous gift from University of San Diego School of Law benefactor Joan E. Bowes of La Jolla.
