The Friends of the Library of North Carolina State University are pleased to present a special lecture by John Balaban and Geoffrey Clifford on Vietnam: A Journey of the Heart, on Thursday, February 17, 2005, at 4:00 p.m.

Location: Assembly Room, Second Floor, East Wing, D. H. Hill Library, NC State University.

There will be a musical performance featuring the dan tranh, a Vietnamese stringed instrument.

Books will be available for sale.

Free and open to the public. Wheelchair accessible.

Clifford's photographs of Vietnam contrast timeless pastoral scenes with views of a modern culture. Exhibit scriptwriter and NCSU Poet-in-Residence John Balaban collaborated with Clifford on the book Vietnam: The Land We Never Knew (1989), a project that inspired the exhibit. The exhibition will remain on display through March 6, 2005, on the mezzanine of the D. H. Hill Library.
