Mark Evans, a wilderness explorer with a passion for bridging cross-cultural differences in the Middle East will lead this public lecture at Foster Auditorium, as part of the Penn State Reads Program.  This lecture will feature an introduction to Oman from Kathleen Ridolfo, the executive director of the Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center in Washington, D.C.  A livestream link will be available for all Penn State students on the Penn state Reads website a week before the event.
