Bucknell University Provost and Professor Barbara Altmann, French, will be the featured speaker at the Bucknell Institute for Lifelong Learning's first Lunch & Learn of the fall on Tuesday, Sept. 13, at noon. The event, which is open to the public, will be held at The Village Common, 6 Tressler Blvd. in Lewisburg.

Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Beverages and light dessert are provided free of charge. Attendees may bring their own lunch or purchase a soup-and-salad lunch for $6 up until noon on Sept. 12 by contacting the BILL office at 570-522-0105 or at The lunch menu for this event features a turkey, walnut and cranberry salad wrap, vegetable soup, and assorted cookies and brownies.

Altmann's talk is titled "Poster Girls of the Middle Ages," and it will focus on medieval women - in particular which ones we still know and talk about. She will explore the question of why we know a few particular ones but not many others, and think through what we may recycle from medieval culture and what use it is to us today.
