David McCullough Tickets On Sale Now For October Author Lecture

July 28, 2003

Tickets for the Ferguson-Clark Author Lecture by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough are on sale at the Baylor University ticket office in the Bill Daniel Student Center. McCullough will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, at Waco Hall. Ticket prices are $10 for general admission and $5 for Baylor faculty, staff and students. Patron tickets are $75 and include admission to a reception with the author following the lecture.

McCullough is the author of six widely acclaimed books, including his Pulitzer Prize-winning "Truman" and "John Adams," which also was number one on the "New York Times" bestseller list for several weeks.

His other books include "The Johnstown Flood," "The Great Bridge," "The Path Between the Seas," "Mornings on Horseback" and "Brave Companions." McCullough also served as host of "Smithsonian World," "The American Experience" and as narrator of the PBS documentary "The Civil War."

In addition to his two Pulitzer Prizes, McCullough has received two National Book Awards, the Frances Parkman Prize, the Charles Frankel Prize from former President Bill Clinton, the "Los Angeles Times" Biography Prize and an Emmy award for his work in public television.

McCullough's lecture will benefit Baylor's libraries. Baylor alumnus Collen A. Clark established the lecture series endowment in honor of his mother Carla Sue Ferguson Garrett, a Baylor alumna and member of the libraries' Board of Advisers. Ernest Gaines, author of "A Lesson Before Dying" and "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," served as the featured speaker at the inaugural lecture last year.

For ticket information, call the Baylor ticket office at 710-3210. For more information on McCullough's lecture, contact Mary Goolsby, library advancement coordinator, at (254) 710-6735.
