Dear Ph.D. students,

A couple of months ago I announced to the list serve an opportunity to present your dissertation research at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.  I'm writing now to announce a similar speaking opportunity at the Thomas Balch Library in Leesburg.  The library has a history-focused lecture series which affords scholars the chance to present their work to a public audience.  The library offers a $100 honorarium to its speakers.  If you are interested, please contact Alexandra Gressitt, the library director ([log in to unmask]).
