(wium) - Rich Egger's guest is Bill Knight, who will deliver the Eighth Annual John Hallwas Liberal Arts Lecture at Western Illinois University.

The presentation is titled I Read the News Today - Oh, Boy: Journalism, Empathy & the Liberal Arts. Knight will give the speech on Tuesday, September 7, 7:00pm, in the University Union Grand Ballroom on the Macomb campus. He will also give the speech Wednesday, September 8, 3:00pm, in Building 102 AB on the Quad Cities campus.

Knight is a journalism professor at WIU. He is also a free lance writer whose weekly commentaries can be heard on Tri States Public Radio.

Knight says a liberal arts education is wide-ranging. It prepares people to engage in critical thinking and teaches them how to disagree in a civil way. Knight believes a liberal arts background is particularly important in a democracy.
