High Point University hosts Laura ToheHIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 18, 2012 – High Point University will continue its Faculty Cultural Enrichment Grant Series with upcoming speaker Dr. Laura Tohe at 7 p.m. on Nov. 1 in the Francis Auditorium in Phillips Hall. The event is open to the public and no tickets are required.

Tohe, an award-winning poet who serves as professor of English at Arizona State University, will present “Armed with our Language, We Went to War.” The presentation will serve as a celebration of both Native American Heritage Month and Veteran’s Day.

Tohe will read from her award-winning poetry and discuss her current book project, an oral history collection of World War II Navajo Code Talkers. Her presentation is an event designed to honor two important elements of the cultural and experiential mosaic of American society – Native Americans and U.S. war veterans.

The grant series at HPU assists faculty to feature nationally renowned academics, artists and performers for cultural enrichment events around campus. The grants support programming in all academic disciplines and help introduce students to thought provoking ideas in art, literature, science, philosophy and business.

Parking will be available for community members in the lot behind the Wilson School of Commerce.
