David Hogg, who survived the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting, stands during a news conference to announce the introduction of bipartisan legislation to expand background checks for sales and transfers of firearms, on Capitol Hill, Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019, in Washington.

A student who survived the Feb. 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Fla., will deliver a lecture on Nov. 8 at the Lied Center.

The lecture by gun control activist David Hogg is titled “Putting the USA over the NRA: What we must do to end gun violence.” It’s free and open to the public and will begin at 7:30 p.m. No tickets are required.

The event is part of the University of Kansas’ Political Science Clifford P. Ketzel Speaker Series. After the lecture, Hogg will be hosting a book signing for his 2018 work, “#NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line,” which he co-authored with his sister, Lauren.
