CANDACE FALK TO SPEAK AT AU FOR WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH

AUBURN -- Author Candace Falk will be the guest lecturer on Thursday, March 4, for Auburn University's observance of women's history month.

Falk will speak on "Passion, Politics and Free Expression: The Legacy of Emma Goldman," at 4 p.m., at Broun Hall.

Goldman is known for her colorful life as a social and labor reformer, revolutionary, anarchist and feminist. Falk's biography of Goldman, Love, Anarchy and Emma Goldman: A Biography, explores the clash between Goldman's public vision and her private life.

Falk is editor and director of the Emma Goldman Papers Project at the University of California-Berkeley. She began researching Goldman after finding papers written by Goldman to her husband, Chicago reformer Ben Reitman.

The free lecture is sponsored by the University Lectures Committee, Women's Studies, the Center for the Arts and Humanities and the departments of history and anthropology.
