Laura Schwartz, international television commentator, speaker, and author of the new book "Eat, Drink and Succeed," will appear at the grand opening of the newly redesigned Todd Wehr Hall on the St. Norbert College campus on Tuesday, April 27.

Schwartz, an alumna of the college, will sign copies of her book at the opening, which takes place from 10-11 a.m., and will speak at 7:30 that evening in the Fort Howard Theatre of the college's F. K. Bemis International Center. A wine reception and book signing will follow her lecture.

Schwartz, a native of Plymouth, Wis., was White House director of events during the Clinton administration, served as a senior advisor to Senator John Kerry during his presidential campaign, and has worked extensively with former President Clinton on behalf of his foundation. She is currently a political consultant and frequent guest on the CBS Early Show, as well as BBC World News and other international television programs. In "Eat, Drink and Succeed," she details the networking strategies that led to her ascendance in the Clinton administration, and prescribes techniques for others seeking similar success.

Todd Wehr Hall, formerly the St. Norbert College library, has been extensively renovated and redesigned to host a wide range of student services offices, as well as the college bookstore, which will hold a ribbon-cutting during the morning ceremony.

Both the grand opening of Todd Wehr Hall and the evening lecture/reception are free and open to the public. For further information, please contact Mike Counter at mike.counter@snc.edu or 920-403-3089.
