Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is the focus of a special one-day presentation at Coe College's Thursday Forum on Oct. 3.

Political Science Professor Emerita and former Thursday Forum Director Margaret Haupt will detail Albright's remarkable emergence into responsibility and influence in shaping American foreign policy in the aftermath of the Cold War. The presentation will concentrate on what is known of the personal influences in Albright's life and career that she has now explored in her recently published "Prague Winter."

An opportunity will also be provided for a guided tour of the exhibit Albright has called "Read My Pins." It opened at the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in May and will be closing on Oct. 27.

The lecture will be held in Kesler Lecture Hall in Hickok Hall on the Coe campus. The session begins with coffee and pastries from 8:45-9:15 a.m., followed by the class until 11:30 a.m. A luncheon follows with reservations due by Sept. 27.

The course is open to all adults and costs $12. The luncheon costs an additional $8. For luncheon reservations or more information about the Coe College Thursday Forum lecture series, call Linda Givvin at 319-399-8619.
