Merci beaucoup for attending the Kathleen Turner event. Ms. Turner's zeal for teaching was an inspiration to her audience.
Our surprise guest, Dr. Guila Clara Kessous, a UNESCO "Artist for Peace" award recipient, spoke about her audio recording of the journal of Hélène Berr, a Sorbonne graduate and Holocaust victim. Her sensitivity to maintaining the integrity of Hélène Berr's story was most admirable.
Please plan to join us on Monday, May 12 2014 at 4 PM in the Grand Reading Room of the Claire T. Carney Library on campus. Dr. Jeremiah Lowney, a Connecticut orthodontist and the founder of the Haiti Health foundation, will speak about his thirty plus years of bringing medical, dental and community assistance to the Jeremie region of Haiti.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available in lot 13. For further information, please contact Maria Sanguinetti at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 508-991-5096.
