|Well-known writer of novels, plays and essays Gore Vidal will speak as part of the Campus Forum series
at noon on Wednesday, April 27.
The campus community is invited to attend Cal Poly Pomona's Campus Forum series, which brings speakers to campus to discuss topics of current and pertinent interest. These free forums are scheduled for Wednesdays at noon in the Bronco Student Center.
Of particular interest, well-known writer of novels, plays and essays Gore Vidal will speak at noon on Wednesday, April 27. Vidal began publishing his writings at only 21. Since then his work has ranged from hit stage plays to television and film screenplays. However, he is best known for his irreverent and clever novels — some best-sellers, some notorious, some historical.

- April 27 — “Reflections of the U.S. of Amnesia” will be discussed by writer Gore Vidal in the Ursa Major Suite.
