The 2009 Dean's Dinner, to be held November 18 at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, will feature keynote speaker Matt Miller. Miller has been called one of the "most original thinkers" in journalism by television's public affairs program, The McLaughlin Group. He is the author of the Los Angeles Times bestseller, "The 2% Solution: Fixing America's Problems in Ways Liberals and Conservatives Can Love," which includes agenda-setting ideas and creative, common-sense solutions for some of America's biggest political problems.
Miller writes a monthly column for Fortune magazine and is an award-winning contributor to The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly and other national magazines. He is a commentator for NPR's Morning Edition and hosts "Left, Right & Center," a political week-in-review program aired on public radio stations across the country. He is a senior Advisor to McKinsey & Company and to the McKinsey Global Institute, the firm's in-house think-tank. Miller also is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress.
The annual Hamline University School of Law Dean's Dinner will begin at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception, with dinner and the keynote presentation to follow. For more information, contact Hamline Alumni Director Susan Stephan at 651-523-2338 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
