ULM's chautauqua nexus discusses Pleasantville in Monroe

The University of Louisiana at Monroe's Chautauqua Nexus talks about the relationship between Monroe, ULM, and the movie "Pleasantville". ULM Social Psychologist Joe McGahan says, "Potential for something "out of the ordinary" is what Pleasantville, ULM, and Monroe all have in common. The question is whether we want to realize that potential and if so, what can help us to get the ball rolling. Answers may be simple and closer than we realize." McGahan is the featured speaker for the discussion.

Next week's Chautauqua meets on the second floor of the Student Union Building Friday, Oct. 26 at 4:30 p.m.

The Chautauqua group meets every week on the second floor of the Student Union Building on the ULM campus (unless otherwise noted) beginning at 4:30 on Fridays or Saturdays. There are no requirements and everyone is invited to come. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Visitors are welcome to make a small donation for foods.
