Who says Mondays are no good?
This Monday (March 15), why not make it yOUr kind of Monday?
Visit the Conant Center from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m., to meet Bernice A. King, the youngest child of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She’s also the president-elect of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
King will be interviewed by several OU students about the topic Women as Leaders and Peace Makers in a Time of War and Economic Crisis. Following the program, she’ll sign copies of her books, available for purchase at the event. Brought to us by the Oglethorpe Women’s Network (OWN) and is co-sponsored by OU’s nationally-recognized Center for Civic Engagement and the Rich Foundation Urban Leadership Program. There is no cost to attend.
You can then stroll across the parking lot to the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art (OUMA) for two more events. From 5:00-6:30 p.m., national award-winning poet Linda Bierds will read from her most recent book Flight: New and Selected Poems, followed by a reception and book signing.
Is there a better way to spend a Monday? We think not.
