Aslan, Kristof, WuDunn open Maverick Speakers Series 2016-17

Internationally renowned journalists, an environmentalist, and a TV venture capitalist headline UTA’s 2016-17 Maverick Speakers Series, presented by OVERTURE DFW, a 55+ living for a New Generation community.

Best-selling author Reza Aslan opens the series Tuesday, Sept. 13, followed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Nicolas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn Thursday, Oct. 6. Other guests include Kevin O’Leary of ABC’s Shark Tank, CNN political commentator Fareed Zakaria, and environmental advocate and filmmaker Alexandra Cousteau.

The new season also brings new ticket options. Students, faculty, and staff may still attend the lectures at no cost.

Now in its ninth season, the Maverick Speakers Series features thought-provoking conversations led by diverse voices for the University community. Read more about the 2016-17 Maverick Speakers Series.
