Contemplating Iran: Announcing the 2013 Lore Kephart '86 Distinguished Historians Lecture Series Speaker

Monday, September 30, 2013

Readers of this blog know of the generosity of my father, and many of you know about the Distinguished Historians Lecture Series that he founded in my mother's name at Villanova University.

James McPherson gave the inaugural lecture in 2009, and two years ago Jill Lepore honored us with an early glimpse of her new book on Jane Franklin—a book that now sits on the long list of the National Book Awards.

This year, on October 8, starting at 7 PM, in the Villanova Room/Connelly Center (Villanova University), the series is hosting yet another extremely timely presentation: "Iran in Transition: US-Iran Relations in the Nuclear Age." Ray Takeyh, (Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies, Council on Foreign Relations Professor, Center for Strategic Studies, Georgetown University) will be the speaker, and the presentation is free and open to the public.

Interested? You can register here.

Our family looks forward to hosting you for this conversation.
