Whither America?

Pulitzer Prize winners Maureen Dowd and Bret Stephens join Pulitzer finalist Ruth Marcus and The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley for “The Road Ahead: United or Divided?” at Westchester Community College Foundation’s President’s Forum Sunday, Nov. 20. The panel will consider the contentious election campaign and the challenges that lie ahead for President-elect Donald Trump and the new leaders in Congress.

Dowd, winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary and author of two New York Times best sellers, became a New York Times Op-Ed columnist in 1995. Her most recent book is “The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics.”

Marcus is a member of the editorial board and an op-ed columnist for The Washington Post, specializing in American politics and domestic policy. She was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for commentary.

Riley is a member of The Wall Street Journal editorial board where he writes on politics, economics, education, immigration and race, among other subjects. He’s a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a commentator for Fox News.

Stephens, the author of “America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder,” is also the deputy editorial page editor and a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter at The Wall Street Journal, where he is responsible for the international opinion pages. He is a regular panelist on Fox News as well as other political talk shows.
