Conan O'Brien is coming to Harvard to talk about the value of a liberal arts education.

The late night TV host will visit the Cambridge campus on Friday for a conversation about arts and education with university President Drew Faust, followed by questions from the audience.

O'Brien is a Brookline native and a 1985 graduate of the Ivy League university, which has about 29,000 students. He hosts "Conan" on TBS and is a former host of "The Tonight Show" on NBC.

The ticketed event will be held at 4 p.m. at Harvard's Sanders Theatre. It will also be streamed live on the university's website.
