On behalf of the Department of Humanistic Studies at Saint Mary's College and as the coordinator of our annual lecture series, I'm pleased to invite you to this year's Christian Culture Lecture. Our 2017 speaker is Margaret Atwood, award-winning writer of more than 40 books of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Her lecture, "The Handmaid's Tale: The Sources" will take place on Wednesday, October 25 at 7:30 p.m. in O'Laughlin Auditorium. Tickets go on sale Monday, September 18 at a discounted price of $10/ticket for Notre Dame faculty, staff, and students (limit 10 tickets). We anticipate the lecture selling out very quickly.
