Billy Beane on the Peninsula Sept. 29-30
What does Billy Beane have in common with longtime White House correspondent Helen Thomas, co-founder of the Mountain Gorilla Project Amy Vedder, and Sergei Khrushchev, son of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev?
Right now — other than the obvious carbon-based form of life thing — not much.
But just wait until the end of September, when the Athletics’ GM will follow in the aforementioned luminaries’ footsteps as the “American Conversations” speaker at Peninsula College.
The events include:
* A Dinner and Conversation at the SunLand Clubhouse in Sequim on Thursday, September 29, at 6:00 p.m.. For ticket information, please contact the Foundation Office at 360-417-6535
* A Community Conversation on Friday, September 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the Peninsula College Little Theater on the main campus in Port Angeles. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students.
* There will also be a special Studium Generale Campus Conversation at noon in the collegeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Little Theater. There is no admission charge for this presentation.
Sounds like a terrific event, with up-close-and-personal access to Mr. Moneyball himself. Worth checking out if you’re in the vicinity.
