Winona State University announces the fall line-up for its premier speaker series, the Lyceum Series.

The Lyceum Series aims to provide unique cultural enrichment and educational opportunities for the Winona and Rochester campus communities.

Swiss scholar Conradin Perner will speak at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, in Stark Hall 103. Perner has worked in the fields of literature, ethnography, diplomacy and humanitarian causes, and has been heavily involved in the peace-making process in Sudan.

Motivational speaker Sandy Queen will appear at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, in Science Laboratory Center 120. Queen is a well-known lecturer, humorist and educator. Her approach focuses on maximizing health and well-being through a positive mental attitude.

Previous speakers include activist Dan Savage who kicked off the 2012-13 Lyceum season on Sept. 27. Savage is widely read throughout the world, and is a leading voice on various LGBT issues. He made headlines in 2010 by launching the “It Gets Better” project on YouTube, in which gay adults offer words of encouragement and their own stories of coming out.

All presentations are free and open to the public.
