The Butler Center Presents Jay Barth and an Analysis on the 2008 Election

Jay Barth, noted political analyst and Ima Graves Peace Professor of Politics at Hendrix College, will be the guest speaker when the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies presents: “2008 Election: What Happened and Why?” Join us for this timely election analysis on Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 6 p.m. in the Darragh Center at the CALS Main Library, 100 S. Rock Street.

Barth has taught at Hendrix College for more than 13 years. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Hendrix College and master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Barth has received the prestigious Steiger Congressional Fellowship and the Pi Sigma Alpha Award for Outstanding Teaching in Political Science from the American Political Science Association.

This event is a fundraiser in support of Books for Arkansas Students’ Education (BASE). BASE is an innovative program of the Butler Center that provides free books about Arkansas’s natural, cultural, and political history to public high schools across the state. BASE especially targets schools with high percentages of low-income students to receive the free books.

There will be a reception and silent book auction. This event is open to the public and has a suggested $10 minimum donation. All proceeds go to assist BASE’s purchase of Arkansas books for public high school libraries. For more information, contact Kathryn Heller at 918-3049 or
