David Cay Johnston, author and Pulitzer Prize winner, will present the first of eight "Great Decisions" lectures on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Norbert College's Fort Howard Theatre, Bemis International Center. Johnston's lecture "Global Financial Crisis" will be about the global financial crisis that began in late 2007.

The presentation is part of the "Great Decisions" lecture series, a national program meant to bring together local, regional and national experts in an eight-week lecture series discussing international issues of interest to the community.

Topics for the "Great Decisions" series are selected by the Foreign Policy Association of America and are intended to provide a local forum for discussion on current political and economic issues of the day. The speakers themselves are selected by participating colleges and universities. St. Norbert College is one of only two Wisconsin schools that present the entire series.

Advance subscription for the entire series is available for $40 per person. Subscription includes admission to all eight lectures and the "Great Decisions" briefing book. The book includes background information on the lecture topics and access to the association's web site, http://www.fpa.org, for resources, guides to topics, and online discussion forums. Admission to individual sessions is also available for $5 at the door, and briefing books are available for $15.
