Seating Sold Out for Saint Mary's Jan Term Speaker Robert Reich
MORAGA, Calif. (Jan, 19, 2011) - The January Term office of Saint Mary's College has announced that tickets are no longer available for the January 25 lecture by Robert Reich, noted economist and secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton.
Reich, the featured guest lecturer of the 2011 Jan Term Speaker Series, is presenting a timely lecture entitled "Why the Economy Is Still So Bad, and Why Our Politics Is So Angry." Reich is the Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley and author of thirteen books, including his most recent "Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future."
Due to a high level of interest in Reich's lecture from Saint Mary's students, faculty and external community members, online ticketing for the free event at the Soda Activity Center, which seats 600, was instituted to prevent over capacity. By Tuesday, a tally of online requests indicated a full house for the Reich event.
