The writer, journalist and political satirist P.J. O’Rourke is best known as a contributor of The Atlantic Monthly, The Weekly Standard and as a frequent panelist on NPR’s news quiz show, “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” Next, he’ll direct his attentions on an audience of willing participants anticipating O’Rourke’s wry wit applied to the most bloated of egos and scenarios. He’s the first guest of the new season for the University of Tulsa’s Presidential Lecture Series, which brings in persons of note in the arts, sciences, humanities and journalism fields and more. O’Rourke visits the Donald W. Reynolds Center, 3208 E. Eighth St., on the TU campus. He takes the podium at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, and, like all talks in this series, it’s free.
