Arrianna Huffington to Speak at UB

The University at Buffalo's Distinguished Speakers Series will open its 2010-11 season tomorrow night, September 16, with a left vs. right exchange between two of the most widely recognized women in political media today: Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, and Mary Matalin, Republican strategist and CNN contributor.

Huffington, a frequent guest on network and cable news programs, is the author of 13 books, the latest of which, "Third World America," will be released this month. Matalin, a bestselling author, served in the
administrations of Ronald Regan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. They are co-hosts of the nationally syndicated radio program, Both Sides Now.
