The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences invites you to join them for the 14th Maine Heritage Lecture, set for October 12 at 3 PM at the Collins Center for the Arts.

Pinette will be discussing the long history of Franco American activism in Maine and the vital part that the university has played in that history. The talk will be followed by a roundtable discussion with longtime advocate Sévérin Beliveau, Maine Senate President Troy Jackson, and the former director of the Franco American Centre, Yvon Labbé. 

The lecture takes place in the Bodwell area on the third floor of the CCA, with a reception to follow in the Hudson Museum. All are welcome. For more information or to request an accommodation, contact Kelly Gilks at
