Program Description

An Evening with Adam Kinzinger  

Online via Zoom, former Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger will discuss his bestselling memoir Renegade: Defending Democracy and Liberty in Our Divided Country, which captures one of the most transformative periods in recent history and recounts Kinzinger's time in public service.

From 2011-2022, Congressman Kinzinger served six terms in the United States House of Representatives, representing Illinois’ 16th Congressional District. Following the events of January 6, 2021, Kinzinger demonstrated an exceedingly rare loyalty to country over party. As one of only two Republicans on the January 6th Committee, Rep. Kinzinger stood against his own party in pursuit of democracy and justice.   

Steve Edwards, award-winning journalist and interviewer and former host of WBEZ's ( Chicago's public radio station) Eight Forty-Eight and The Afternoon Shift will moderate the conversation with Kinzinger.
