Fall Arts Celebration: "I Heard The Sirens Scream" Lecture by Laurie Garrett

2nd Floor Eberhard Center, Pew Grand Rapids Campus

Fall Arts Celebration, Humanities

Laurie Garrett is the only person to win the three Ps of journalism: the Pulitzer, Polk and Peabody.

Garrett is one of Americas most trusted speakers on public health, infectious disease and prevention. A senior fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations, she has written many books, including "The Coming Plague."

Garrett is particularly suited to navigate the intersections of politics and science, in an effort to understand and describe how our leaders help and hinder, how we prepare, how we treat, and how we respond to the threats of global health. Lecture followed by book signing and reception.

Since its start in 2003, Fall Arts Celebration has featured some of the preeminent writers, poets, musicians, artists and scholars of our time. The tradition continues in 2013 with six signature events that aim to broaden our horizons, help us make sense of the new and unfamiliar, reflect on the past and be charmed by the classics.

All Fall Arts Celebration events are open to the public with free admission. Seating is limited for these popular performances. For more information, visit, or call (616) 331-2185.
