(Seguin) -- Seguinites are encouraged to spend an evening with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Lisa Falkenberg, during a special event Thursday night in the Texas Theatre.
"A Conversation with Lisa Falkenberg" is sponsored by the non-profit group Educate Seguin. Board member Marty Keil says those in attendance will get a chance to hear directly from the Seguin native, hear about her exciting career as a journalist, and also hear about the details of her winning a Pulitzer Prize last year.
"She is a native of Seguin, (and) went through Seguin ISD -- a graduate of Seguin High School in the class of 1996. She is the 2015 Pulitzer Prize winner for commentary. We're so very proud of her accomplishment, and her success and her career. We've asked her to come and speak to the community, and talk about her upbringing in Seguin, her years going through the Seguin ISD system, and the inspirations that she was given from teachers, especially in her high school years to pursue a career in journalism. She agreed to come and we're just pleased to have her, (and) show her off a bit to the community," said Keil.
The doors open at 6:30 p.m. with beverages and heavy hors d'oeuvres. The program begins at 7:15 p.m. Tickets for the event are $25,and can be purchased at KWED Radio/Seguin Daily News, Keepers Interiors, Gift & Gourmet or at the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce.
