Former first lady Laura Bush is coming to southeast Kansas in the spring to speak during Pittsburg State University’s Women in Government Lecture Series.
The university says Bush will speak on education, literacy, volunteerism and human rights on April 22 at the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts. Ticket prices and their availability will be announced early in the spring semester.
Previous participants in the Women in Government series include former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, human rights activist Kerry Kennedy, White House correspondent Helen Thomas and Kansas Supreme Court Justice Kay McFarland.
The lecture series at Pittsburg State began in 2001 through a gift to the school from the Helen S. Boylan Foundation, which provided a special grant to bring Bush to the campus.
