FORT WAYNE, Ind. — An upcoming lecture by Monica Lewinsky at Purdue University Fort Wayne is being postponed due to coronavirus.

Lewinsky was set to speak at Auer Performance Hall at Rhinehart Music Center on Jan. 25 as part of the Omnibus Speaker Series.

“Due to the current spike in COVID-19 cases, and to ensure as safe an experience as possible for audience members, we are currently working to reschedule Monica Lewinsky’s appearance,” the university said on its website.

Lewinsky was a White House intern in the 1990s when she drew nationwide attention for her affair with then-President Bill Clinton. She is now a social activist campaigning against online harassment.

The university is working with Lewinsky’s representatives to reschedule her appearance for later this year, according to WANE-TV.

The next lecture in the Omnibus Series is on Feb. 17 and will feature former Republican National Committee Chairman, Michael Steele.
