About the show: KPR Presents
KPR Presents is an opportunity to showcase high-profile, thought-provoking lectures, discussions and dialogues recorded throughout the region. There are so many fascinating people who come to this area, everyone from Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to syndicated columnist Leonard Pitts. KPR Presents is a great way to share some of those lectures with our listeners. We've also been able to expand the program to cover a broad range of topics, including the Kansas Sesquicentennial, the National Day of Listening and the 'Kansas Reads' program sponsored by the State Library of Kansas, just to name a few.
