MLA Lecture Series

[We have two talks scheduled this evening, featuring two of our thesis students; each talk will be 20 minutes long, with questions afterwards]

Speaker: Sarah Hamer: “Dr Butler and the Shreveport Narcotics Clinic”

A historian, story-teller, and writer, Sarah Hamer found the MLA program at LSUS to be the perfect fit for her. She also teaches various forms of fiction writing at the Continuing Education Department at LSUS.

Speaker: Lucy Medvec: “The History of the Strand Theater”

Lucy Medvec is the current National Director of Membership and Development for the American Rose Society headquartered in Shreveport, Louisiana. With over 27 years in nonprofit experience, she is passionate about the arts and life in our community. She is currently working on her thesis in the Master of Liberal Arts program at LSU-Shreveport and in her spare time is an avid reader of all literary genres.
