The Dalai Lama comes to Ann Arbor this weekend

Ann Arbor welcomes the 14th Dalai Lama this week for a two-day educational program, Saturday and Sunday, April 19 and 20, sponsored by Jewel Heart, Garrison Institute, and The Tibet Fund. The Dalai Lama is the subject of several works in the Library, including the recent book The Open Road: The Global Journey of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, currently on order; the award-winning film Kundun, by Martin Scorsese; and the DVD 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama. He's also written many books. For an excellent overview, try The Essential Dalai Lama: His Important Teachings. The Dalai Lama will deliver the Peter M. Wege Lecture on Sustainability at 2:00 p.m. Sunday in Crisler arena in conjunction with Ann Arbor Earth Day celebrations. A live broadcast will be carried on Michigan Channel 22 on Comcast cable in the greater Ann Arbor area and a live streaming video will be available at: http://umtv-live.rs.itd.umich.edu/pres/dalailama.asx.

Gosh the tickets to the lectures sure went fast.. Is the live feed going to be shown at the library? maybe the multi-purpose room as has been done before?


We don't have plans to offer a viewing at this point. Unfortunately, we have other events scheduled at that time as part of our National Library Week celebration. But thanks for the suggestion.
