That’s right! The event you wait for all year long is coming up in just a few weeks! This year’s luncheon will be held on March 31, 2012 @ 12:00pm in the Virginia Dare Room of the UNCG Alumni House. This year the Cora Paul Bomar lecture on Librarianship will be delivered by Dr. Brian Sturm. Brian received his MLS in 1991 and my PhD in 1998, both from Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. He served as the assistant director of the Indiana University Library School on the South Bend campus. He is an Associate Professor at UNC SILS and teaches classes at SILS on storytelling. He has been a storyteller for over 12 years. His talk is entitled “Creating and Marketing Immersive Libraries.” We will also be presenting the Kovacs Award for Outstanding Alumni Achievement to this year’s deserving alumnus. Alumni, family, friends, and LIS faculty and students are all welcome to attend!
Tickets are $25 for alumni (and other non-students) and $10 for current LIS students. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you will join us on March 31!
