The Nebraska Model United Nations will host former presidential speech writer, John Gibson, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, in Copeland Hall Room 131 at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Globally Speaking: Reflections of a Presidential Speechwriter will focus on Gibson’s experiences as a presidential speechwriter. Gibson, who is a native Nebraskan, was a foreign policy speechwriter for Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
Gibson will address how presidents balance competing interests in setting foreign policy priorities, and how presidential speeches are written. He wrote President Bush’s first two addresses to the United Nations after 9/11 terrorist attacks.
