Raul Castro to speak Saturday, April 18 at History Brunch Series at Museum

This should be an interesting and informative event. Contact the AHS Museum Megan Gately to RSVP 480-929-0292.

Former Arizona Governor, US Ambassador, and Pima County Superior Court Judge Raul H. Castro and Dr. Jack August will speak about their book, Adversity is My Angel: The Life and Career of Raul H. Castro (Ft. Worth: Texas Christian University Press) and answer questions at the Arizona Historical Society in Tempe (April 18, 2009).

Dr. August said of the last brunch series, “I spoke about Evan Mecham at one of these brunches and it was a blast. Some of the leading figures from the impeachment era were there and added a lot to that event. Please know that Governor Castro is an active 93 year old and has a driver's license! These brunches are entirely different than the traditional/stuffy academic talks that many of us try to avoid. These two talks should be great fun and you will not regret listening to and meeting Governor Castro.” -Jack
