'Beer, Booze and Books' to be Presented Oct. 13

Oct. 9, 1997

Jim Matthews, an expert on alcohol abuse, will speak at Baylor University on "Beer, Booze and Books" at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 13, in Waco Hall during Chapel-Forum. His appearance begins Baylor's annual Alcohol Awareness Week, and he will incorporate into his lecture various multi-media aspects specifically aimed at college students.

Matthews has presented alcohol awareness and abuse programs to colleges throughout the country. His book and program, "Beer, Booze, and Books," is designed as an up-beat, non-judgmental presentation that motivates students to critically examine alcohol's role in their lives or in the lives of their friends and families.

He currently serves as the special assistant to the vice president for alcohol and other drug programs at Keene State College in Keene, N.H.

The Baylor Health Education and Wellness office will host five other campus speaking engagements for Matthews during the week, including a Brown Bag lunch at noon on Monday, Oct. 13, in the Barfield Drawing room of the Bill Daniel Student Center.
