St. Norbert College will host internationally acclaimed photographer, writer and filmmaker Rick Nahmias at The Norman and Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding on Tuesday, Oct. 5. His talk, "Diversity, Community, and the Margins of American Society," will be followed by a gallery reception featuring his photography exhibit, "Golden States of Grace: Prayers of the Disinherited."

"Golden States of Grace: Prayers of the Disinherited" documents eleven marginalized communities at prayer in eight different faith traditions. In addition to the gallery reception, there will be a book signing of Nahmias' newly published companion book to the exhibit.

The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Bemis International Center on the St. Norbert College campus. The gallery reception will take place at 7:45 p.m. at the Bush Art Center, also on campus. Both are free and open to the public.

A second Miller Lecture is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 17, featuring Leonard Pitts, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the Miami Herald.
