The 2018 Goodman Lecture presents Krista Tippett with "The Adventure of Civility."

Krista Tippett is host/executive producer of “On Being” — originally called “Speaking of Faith” — at Minnesota Public Radio/American Public Media. She is a Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and New York Times best-selling author. In 2014, she received the National Humanities Medal at the White House for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.”

In 2007, Tippett published her first book, Speaking of Faith. It is a memoir of religion in our time. Her New York Times best-seller Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living opens into the questions and challenges of this century.

About the Goodman Lecture

The Goodman Lecture was endowed in 1979 by Arthur and Konstance Goodman, founders of Goodman Jewelers and parents of Mary Ann Goodman Reilly '61 and Stephanie Goodman '83 and grandparents of Kristin Reilly '91 MSW'01. The elder Goodmans were an interfaith couple who experienced both anti-Semitism and anti-Christian sentiments and wished to create a forum to advance the cause of Jewish-Christian understanding.


This edition of the Goodman Lecture series is free and open to the public, but tickets are required.
