Former U.S. Pres. Bill Clinton and bestselling author James Patterson will discuss their new novel, “The President is Missing,” at 6 p.m. Saturday, June 9, at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Jack Stephens Center. 

The event is part of the Frank and Kula Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture Series, hosted by the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton School of Public Service.

Mary Steenburgen will moderate the discussion about the Clinton-Patterson collaboration, offering candid insights into their unique collaboration and research as well as the timely and alarming issues their novel raises about our world today.

“The President is Missing” marks the first time a president has collaborated with a bestselling novelist on a work of fiction. The result is a powerful, one-of-a-kind thriller filled with details only a president could know and the kind of suspense only Patterson can deliver.

The Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture Series was established with a gift from the Kumpuris Family in honor of their mother and in memory of their father. The Kumpuris Lecture Series is presented by the Clinton Foundation, Clinton School of Public Service, and AT&T.

This program does not include a public signing. Books pre-signed by both authors are available for pre-order.

The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. Doors open at 5 p.m. Seats may be reserved online or by emailing kumpurislecture@clintonschool.uasys.edu or calling 501-683-5239.
