'Evening With Elie Wiesel' set for Sept. 21

"An Evening With Elie Wiesel" is scheduled for 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21, in McCosh 50.

Wiesel, a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, novelist and professor of the humanities at Boston University, has been a human rights advocate for much of his life. His personal experience of the Holocaust informs his work as a teacher, writer and defender of oppressed people throughout the world.

Wiesel will discuss the challenges currently confronting mankind and the ways in which both individuals and the international community can affect the course of history.

The talk, designated as the Walter E. Edge Lecture, is part of the University's Public Lecture Series and is co-sponsored by the Humanity Project.
