Sponsorship of Lyceum Series Event
Truman State University has received major support from the Truman Bookstore, an operation of Barnes &; Noble College Stores Inc., for the University's 1998-99 Kohlenberg Lyceum Series. The Truman Bookstore will be sponsoring the Captain Jim Lovell's presentation, "Apollo 13: A Successful Failure," as part of the Kohlenberg Lyceum Series on April 10. Lovell, a legendary hero of American space travel, was the commander of the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission in 1970. Additional support will be provided by the Truman State University Foundation.
