Reminder: LeAnn Thieman Free Lecture This Thursday

LeAnn Thieman, nurse, author, and participant in “Operation Babylift,” will speak this week as part of our 2011 Guest Lecture Series.  LeAnn’s lecture will be held on Thursday, May 12th at 7:00pm in the Lanier Auditorium of the Texas Tech University School of Law.  Admission is free and open to the public.  The lecture will be followed by a book signing in the auditorium atrium.

The mission of the Vietnam Center and Archive Guest Lecture Series is to enrich the intellectual and cultural life of students, faculty, and the community at large by bringing distinguished individuals to campus for presentations on specific aspects of the Vietnam War, its lasting impact on American politics, society and culture, and on contemporary issues in Southeast Asia.

This lecture series is funded in part by a generous grant from the Helen Jones Foundation.  For more information on the 2011 VNCA Guest Lecture Series or about LeAnn Thieman see http://www.vietnam.ttu.edu/GLS.
