Spring Event Lineup
Among the spring highlights of Seattle Pacific University’s 2006 Engage! Event Series are lectures by “America’s Historian” David McCullough and author Calvin Miller, and SPU’s fourth annual Queen Anne and Magnolia Garden Tour.
On April 25, McCullough — distinguished historian and best-selling author of such books as 1776 and John Adams — will speak at Seattle Pacific’s invitation-only Downtown Business Breakfast, followed by a 1 p.m public lecture in Upper Gwinn Commons. Two-time winner of the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, McCullough has been called a “master of the art of narrative history.” His public lecture is free.
The 2006 Christian Writers Renewal, titled “The Master’s Call to Excellence,” comes to campus May 5–6 and features poet, preacher, author, and professor Calvin Miller. The conference is presented by the SPU Fellows and features classes on writing and publishing taught by accomplished writers, editors, and literary agents. Cost is $129 for the conference ($149 after April 7); $12 for Miller’s May 5 public lecture in Upper Gwinn Commons.
Seattle Pacific’s popular Queen Anne and Magnolia Garden Tour takes place June 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The tour kicks off in Upper Gwinn Commons with a presentation by alumna Lorene Forkner ’81, owner of the Seattle nursery and garden store Fremont Gardens. This year’s tour includes six stunning residential gardens; container-gardening demonstrations; and guided tours of SPU’s award-winning gardens. Admission is $18 in advance, $20 the day of the tour.
