President Trump is addressing the nation about border security tonight (Tuesday, Jan. 8). Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer will give a joint response immediately following. The government is partially shut down, with Trump in a stalemate with Democrats over funding for a wall along the southern border. Watch the remarks live.

Barry Lopez is a well-known and highly respected author, essayist, and short story writer. His writing has often been compared to Henry David Thoreau. In 1986 he won the National Book Award for his nonfiction book “Arctic Dreams,” and was a finalist for the award in 1980 for “Of Wolves and Men.”

In 2003, Lopez became Texas Tech’s first Distinguished Visiting University Scholar. He visits campus twice a year, in the spring and in the fall.
