Premier Lecture Season Now Finalized

LifeLong Learning has once again created a wonderful lineup of speakers for its Premier Lectures, including several who spoke here previously to rave reviews. We expect you may find each so fascinating you’ll want to purchase a “Premier Lecture Season Ticket” 

PebbleCreek’s Steve Chealander opens the season on Friday, Nov. 8 with his “Recollections of Ronald Reagan.” Chealander was a military aide to President Reagan and carried the “nuclear football.”

The second speaker, Clinton Romesha, was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2013 for his service in the war in Afghanistan. Red Platoon: A True Story of American Valor is his book that emphasizes how the capacity for leadership and bravery resides within every one of us. He will present on Saturday, Jan. 18.

On Friday Jan. 31, Brigadier General Linda Medler, director of Cyber Security for Raytheon Missile Systems, will discuss U.S. cyber security and its ability to prevent election tampering, infrastructure attacks and hacking of government databases.

Susan Frontczak, in a living history performance as Erma Bombeck on Friday, Feb. 15, will tell us how Erma turned the average American housewife into an American legend by exposing the everyday struggles of a wife and mother.  You may remember her outstanding appearance as Eleanor Roosevelt two years ago.

On Friday, March 3, Gary Marchant, law professor at ASU, will discuss artificial intelligence (AI) and how it needs to be controlled to benefit, not hurt, individuals, business and society.

The final lecture on Friday, March 20, brings Mark Randol back to PebbleCreek to discuss migration and how social media have accelerated the migration of people seeking a better life for themselves.

Individual tickets are $15 per person and will go on sale Monday, Oct. 14.
