Spend an evening with Rick Bragg and Alpine Living

February 20, 2013

Alpine Living, the University of Alabama student-led international travel magazine, will be hosting a fundraiser featuring a speech by Rick Bragg on Wednesday, March 6th at 7:30 p.m. in Room 205 of Amelia Gayle Gorgas library.

Tickets can be purchased at the door and are priced at $8 for students and faculty and $12 for members of the community. Both cash and credit cards will be accepted. All proceeds will go towards the printing costs of the magazine.

Bragg, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, author and current professor of writing in the College of Communications and Information Sciences at the University of Alabama, has not given a speech on campus since April of last year when he was chosen as the 2012 Last Lecture speaker.

On March 16th, 22 UA graduate and undergraduate students will travel to Spain for a two-week tour of the country as part of their international journalism course. In Barcelona, Madrid, Pamplona and Seville, the students will write, report and photograph stories about the culture of each region, culminating in a 100+ page magazine.

For more information regarding the trip, contact Dr. Kimberly Bissell at (205) 348-8247 kbissell@bama.ua.edu
