Leeke-Shaw Lecture: Afghan Refugee Resettlement

January 20, 12:00 PM


Mehr Sher

The Margaret Chase Smith Library invites you to a presentation on the Afghan refugee resettlement program on Friday, January 20, at noon. Our speaker will be Mehr Sher. Ms. Sher is the new statewide environmental reporter on the investigative desk for the Bangor Daily News, as well as a Report for America corps member. She brings a global perspective to the topic, having served as a journalist in Pakistan for six years. She received her bachelor’s degree in International Relations at North Carolina State University and earned a master’s in investigative reporting from the Columbia School of Journalism.

Because of Ms. Sher’s work schedule and the uncertainty of winter weather in Maine, the event will be held via Zoom. You can register by filling out the Google Form here.  A Zoom link will be sent to you before the lecture.

This program is being offered in conjunction with the Mid-Maine Global Forum. The MMGF's theme for the 2022-23 academic year is migrations. You can find out about presentations on other migrations besides those of Afghanis at the MMGF website.

For more information on the Leeke-Shaw Lecture on International Affairs, please contact the Library by email at mcsl@mcslibrary.org or by phone at 474-7133.
