Sarah Palin is coming back to Louisville.
The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican Vice-Presidential candidate is scheduled to be the keynote speaker and conduct a question and answer session on September 16 at the National Quartet Convention at Freedom Hall.
“We are delighted to be able to present Governor Palin to our NQC attendees,” said National Quartet Convention Executive Director Clarke Beasley in a statement. “She is an inspiration to so many, and she is doing many conferences throughout the nation where she focuses on what her Christian faith and her family means to her. Those are the type of topics she will address at the NQC. We are thrilled to host her.”
Unlike an April appearance at Freedom Hall when Palin spoke at the Women of Joy Christian Women's conference, Beasley says members of the media will also be able to attend the event.
“Plans are being made to accommodate the members of the media who plan to attend. We will have a reserved area for them right behind the audio console. In that reserved area, media representatives will be able to position cameras on tripods and we will also supply a direct audio feed to them.”
The news comes the same day as the announcement of Palin's daughter, Bristol, being named as a contestant on ABC's Dancing with the Stars. Bristol Palin is scheduled to appear in Louisville on September 8 at a benefit for a home for single mothers, the Lifehouse.
