Civil rights icon and U.S. Rep. John Lewis will speak at Pearce Auditorium in Gainesville Feb. 18 at 3 p.m. Lewis was originally scheduled to appear at Brenau on Jan. 20, but his presentation was postponed due to inclement weather.
The event is free and open to the public. Students will be seated at 2 p.m. and all other attendees will be seated at 2:30 p.m.
Following the presentation, Lewis will sign copies of the graphic novels MARCH in Sellars Gallery beginning at 3:45 p.m. Copies of the books, which were the common reader for last fall’s Women’s College first-year seminar, will be available for purchase at the event.
