Callista Gingrich Visits King's
Mrs. Gingrich Speaks on American Exceptionalism
NEW YORK, April 12, 2012—The King’s College was proud to host Mrs. Callista Gingrich for a talk on American Exceptionalism on Monday, April 9th. The event was organized by The King’s College Republicans.
The King’s College Republicans was founded last fall by Christian Stempert, a sophomore and member of the House of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The club collaborated with members of Mrs. Gingrich’s staff to host the event, which included food, a lecture, and an informal meet and greet following Mrs. Gingrich’s speech.
During her talk, Mrs. Gingrich argued that “America is an exceptional nation.” She also lamented what she sees as a young generation that is disillusioned with patriotism. She also discussed Sweet Land of Liberty, her newest children’s book. The book centers on Ellis the Elephant, who travels through time to experience great moments in American history, including the Boston Tea Party, the travels of the pioneers, and even Neil Armstrong stepping onto the moon.
During the meet and greet, Mrs. Gingrich took the time to meet every student attending and take a photo with each.
After her visit, Mrs. Gingrich tweeted a message saying, “Enjoyed speaking with a room full of future leaders at The King's College in New York last night.”
The King’s College educates students in the ideas upon which nations rise and fall. With a focused curriculum in the liberal arts tradition, students are prepared to help shape, and eventually to lead, the institutions of government, civil society, media, law, business, education, the arts, and the church.
