The 60th season of the Purdue University North Central Sinai Forum will open on Sept. 15, CT at 7 p.m. at Michigan City High School, 8466 W Pahs Road, in Michigan City with Robert Gibbs discussing, “Inside the Oval: From the White House to the World.”

Gibbs has been a trusted advisor and strategist to President Obama, having been with him since his 2004 U.S. Senate campaign. As a former White House press secretary and longtime senior advisor to the Obama administration, Gibbs has had an integral role in the administration’s politics, strategy and messaging.

He was at the forefront of the 2012 elections, serving as senior advisor to President Obama’s reelection campaign. His key role with the Oval Office and his interaction with the nation’s leaders have given him an inside view of the executive branch and how it shapes the nation and the world.

Gibbs also served as press secretary to John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign and has specialized in Senate Campaigns.

The 2013 Forum season is sponsored by The Franciscan Alliance Northern Indiana Hospitals, including Franciscan St. Anthony Health in Michigan City and Crown Point, Franciscan St. Margaret Health in Dyer and Hammond and Franciscan Physicians Hospital in Munster.

Season subscription tickets are $75 for regular tickets and $150 for patron tickets. Any student with a valid ID will be admitted free. Subscribers and others purchasing tickets are encouraged to purchase season tickets early, due to the big lineup for the 60th anniversary.
