America – A Global Perspective

Monday, 11/18/2019 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Tower Theatre, downtown Bend

NPR host to discuss global perceptions of U.S. in COCC scholar talk

Lulu Garcia-Navarro, the host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday and a former foreign correspondent, will discuss “America–A Global Perspective” as part of the Central Oregon Community College Foundation’s Visiting Scholar Program at 7 p.m., on Monday, Nov. 18, at the Tower Theatre in Bend. Tickets are $15; visit

Garcia-Navarro, who spent years living abroad as an NPR foreign correspondent in places like the Middle East and Latin America – areas heavily impacted by U.S. foreign policy – will share her insights on how the rest of the world views the United States, contrasted with the U.S.’s own global perceptions. The journalist will share examples from her years of field reporting and her current role as host of NPR’s Sunday program. Garcia-Navarro is the recipient of many journalism awards, including two Peabody Awards, an Overseas Press Club Award and an Edward R. Murrow Award.
