MSU's Fall Convocation speaker Sarah Vowell will join Rachel Hergett, MSU News Service writer and KGLT volunteer DJ, for an informal conversation. The interview is one of several activities taking place as part of Convocation.
Vowell, an MSU alumna, is a New York Times bestselling author, is the voice of teenage superhero Violet Parr in “The Incredibles” films and was a contributing editor of the public radio show “This American Life” from 1996 to 2008.
Vowell has written extensively on American history and culture and is known for her wit and social observations. She will discuss her personal journey from MSU student to a successful literary and broadcast career. MSU President Waded Cruzado believes Vowell will be an inspiration to first year students.
"Sara Vowell’s story gives voice to what happens when talent and curiosity meet access to a land-grant education,” she said.
The event will be streamed live from MSU Library Archives and Special Collections. Details will be shared here when they become available.For additional information, contact Ann Vinciguerra, MSU Library events and communications manager, email@example.com, 406-994-6857.
