New Feature: Coming to the Region

Occasionally, we’re alerted to learning opportunities in the area that are sponsored by other institutions or organizations. When we think they might be relevant or of interest to our staff, faculty, or students, we’ll share them here.

Christopher Nixon Cox will open the fall 2013 Fry Lecture Series at Franklin Pierce University on Thursday, November 7, 7 p.m. in Spagnuolo Hall on the Rindge campus. Sponsored by the University’s Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication, Cox will address “The 40th Anniversary of President Nixon’s Trip to China – Moving Forward.” Cox, a New York attorney, is the grandson of former President Richard Nixon. In May 2013 he and his wife, Andrea, retraced the path of his grandfather’s historic 1972 trip to China. Cox’s lecture will contrast the China of today with the one that President Nixon witnessed.

The Fry Lecture Series will continue on December 8 when Rita Cosby, special correspondent for CBS’s syndicated TV news magazine, Inside Edition, speaks at 5 p.m., also in Spagnuolo Hall. The title of her talk will be “Quiet Heroes.” Cosby is the author of two bestsellers, Blonde Ambition and Quiet Hero: Secrets from My Father’s Past. Proceeds from the sale of the latter support Operation Enduring Care for wounded veterans and their families.
