This year’s lecturer is Susan Pinette, Professor of Modern Languages and Classics and Director of UMaine’s Franco American Program. Pinette will be discussing the long history of Franco American activism in Maine and the vital part that the university has played in that history. The talk will be followed by a roundtable discussion with longtime advocate Sévérin Beliveau, Maine Senate President Troy Jackson, and the former director of the Franco American Centre, Yvon Labbé.
The lecture takes place in the Bodwell area on the third floor of the CCA, with a reception to follow in the Hudson Museum. All are welcome.
