BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Ann Coulter, the author of four New York Times bestsellers, the legal correspondent for Human Events and a popular syndicated columnist, will present a lecture on Feb. 23 at Indiana University Bloomington hosted by Union Board.
Coulter will speak at the IU Auditorium, 1211 E. Seventh St., on the topic, "Liberals Are Wrong About Everything!" Her lecture will begin at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the seating area will open at 6:30 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Coulter's books include How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) (2004); Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism (2003); Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right (2002); and High Crimes and Misdemeanors:The Case Against Bill Clinton (1998).
Coulter, whose column is distributed by Universal Press Syndicate, is a frequent guest on many television shows, including "Hannity and Colmes," "Wolf Blitzer Reports," "At Large with Geraldo Rivera," "Scarborough Country," "HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher," "The O'Reilly Factor" and "Good Morning America." She has been profiled in numerous publications including the Guardian (UK), the New York Observer, National Journal, Harper's Bazaar and Elle magazine.

Coulter clerked for Pasco Bowman II of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and was an attorney in the Department of Justice Honors Program for outstanding law school graduates.
After private law practice in New York City, Coulter worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she handled crime and immigration issues for former Sen. Spencer Abraham (R-Mich.). From there, she became a litigator with the Center for Individual Rights in Washington, D.C., a public interest law firm dedicated to the defense of individual rights with particular emphasis on freedom of speech, civil rights and the free exercise of religion.
A Connecticut native, Coulter graduated with honors from Cornell University and received her J.D. degree from University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor of The Michigan Law Review.
