Iowa State University will be one of three stops for conservative media personality Ben Shapiro. The lecture will be held April 27 at Stephens Auditorium and will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the QR Code available in the image above.
“Young Americans for Freedom at Iowa State has the unique honor of being able to host Ben Shapiro as one of the three campus lectures he’s doing this semester,” said Kyle Poen, president of Young Americans for Freedom at Iowa State. “Being chosen as one of the three spots is very unique. It’s very timely with all of the stuff we’ve seen happening across Iowa the last couple of years.”
In 2020, Ibram X. Kendi spoke at Iowa State. Poen expressed excitement that someone is coming to campus who represents the opposing view.
Shapiro is co-founder and editor emeritus of The Daily Wire. He hosts The Ben Shapiro Show, the largest and fastest-growing conservative podcast and radio show in the country.
He has authored eight nonfiction books, including the 2021 New York Times best-seller, “The Authoritarian Moment: How the Left Weaponized America’s Institutions Against Dissent.”
Shapiro is one of the most requested speakers on college campuses across America.
