Lone Star College-Montgomery Welcomes Lisa Gray as Part of Lyceum Speakers Series

When Houston Chronicle columnist Lisa Gray moved to Houston in 1984, she didn't expect to stay long enough to care about the place. Today, however, she’s still in town, and her passion and knowledge for the city exudes itself in her weekly printed column.

Gray will be discussing what she’s learned about Houston, Houstonians, and Houston’s “sense of place” during a free presentation at Lone Star College-Montgomery on Tuesday, November 12, from 12-1 p.m., in the Recital Hall, located in the college’s Music Hall (Building H). The event, which is sponsored by the college’s Lyceum Speaker’s Series, includes a meet-and-greet reception with Gray in the same location beginning at 11:30 a.m. Free refreshments will be provided.
 
Gray’s presentation will focus on the history, architecture, ecology, and people that round out the fourth largest city in America.
 
Gray is a writer for the Chronicle, covering topics such as the city's environment, urban design, architecture, or history. Her work also appears in Literary Houston, an anthology of writing about Houston and Houstonians, which was edited by David Theis. She is currently a member of the Houston Chronicle editorial board.
 
The Lyceum Speaker Series at LSC-Montgomery provides a variety of free lectures throughout the fall and spring semesters that are based on sociological, historical, economical, political, psychological, and spiritual views. All students, staff, and faculty, as well as community members, are invited to attend any Lyceum event throughout the year.
