Senate majority leader and U of L graduate Mitch McConnell will visit the Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium June 17 to discuss his recent publication.

The discussion and signing for his book, titled “The Long Game: A Memoir,” is being hosted by the McConnell center. The center is celebrating its 25 year anniversary, and recently sent scholars to China as a part of their study.

“Senator McConnell is perhaps the most famous U of L alum, as well as one of the most impactful political figures of our age,” McConnell Center Director Gary Gregg said. “His book is getting considerable world-wide attention, and it’s an honor for us to host his first discussion of his memoir here in Kentucky.”

The book details Senator McConnell’s political career, spanning his time as a student body president in highschool to his current position as the United States senate majority leader.

The event will be held in the PNC club at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium at 6pm. While tickets are free, all attendees must register and obtain tickets through to attend.
