AUSTIN, Texas—Former President William J. Clinton will deliver the 14th Liz Carpenter Lecture at 6:45 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 12 in the Bass Concert Hall of the Performing Arts Center at The University of Texas at Austin. Please note that the time is subject to change.
The event is open to the public, and free tickets will be available at the Performing Arts Center and Texas Union ticket offices beginning Feb. 3.
This is the second time Clinton has accepted Carpenter’s invitation to highlight her lectureship. In 1995, he spoke at the university on leadership and public service as the Million Man March was being held in Washington, D.C.
The lecture is sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and the Texas Union Distinguished Speakers Committee.
The Liz Sutherland Carpenter Distinguished Visiting Lectureship in the Humanities and Sciences was established by the University of Texas System Board of Regents using funds raised at a benefit honoring Carpenter in 1983. The lectureship has brought to the university such luminaries as former First Lady Hillary Clinton, former President Gerald R. Ford, Madam el-Sadat, anthropologist Jane Goodall and poet Maya Angelou.
Members of the public are asked to call 512-471-4141 for more information.
