A former first daughter will headline Missouri State University’s 2018 Public Affairs Conference. Jenna Bush Hager will serve as keynote speaker September 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts.
Hager is a contributing correspondent on NBC’s Today Show and author of the New York Time’s best-selling book, “Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope,” a book she wrote after traveling to Latin America with UNICEF in 2006. The book tells the story of a 17-year-old single mother with HIV who struggles to shield her child from her life of abuse and neglect.
The event kicks off the Public Affairs Conference, which runs through September 27. The theme is “Unity in Community.”
