Faculty, staff and students are invited to hear Political Science Professor Chris McDonald, Ph.D., present “From Springfield to Schlestadt” tomorrow, April 11 from 9 to 10 a.m. in the Trutter Center. The public is invited to the free event.

Professor McDonald’s presentation is based on his new book,  book cover“‘Three Lying or Four Sitting’—From the Front in a Ford,” which gives an eyewitness account of World War I through the detailed, literate and humorous letters of Springfield native and Harvard student Kent Dunlap Hagler.

A book signing will follow the presentation. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. Cost is $20, which includes tax. All proceeds from book sales will benefit the LLCC Foundation general scholarship fund in honor of Kent Dunlap Hagler.

In addition to the presentation and book signing, an exhibit containing WWI artifacts is being presented by the Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter Museum.

Chris will also present at Soup and Stories next Wednesday, April 15 from noon-1 p.m. in the R.H. Stephens Room.
