Mara Liasson, a longtime political correspondent for National Public Radio, is scheduled to speak at Spokane Community College to mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.

The lecture, sponsored by SCC’s Hagan Center for the Humanities, will be free and open to the public. It will begin at 7 p.m. on March 12 in the auditorium of SCC’s Lair Student Center.

Liasson, who joined NPR in 1985, was a White House correspondent during Bill Clinton’s administration and has covered every presidential election since 1992, as well as congressional races.

Liasson reports for the news programs “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.” She also regularly appears as a panelist on Bret Baier’s show “Special Report” on Fox News.
