Dr. Thomas King and Dr. Helen Hoy made a two day visit to the UAS Juneau campus on Oct 13 & 14, 2011. As part of the One Campus, One Book project, Thomas and Helen visited several classrooms to talk with students about "The Truth about Stories". They were welcomed with a reception at the Egan Library and a potluck luncheon. Thomas gave a literary reading from his collection of short stories “A Short History of Indians in Canada” in the Egan Library on Friday followed by a student Q&A. Both the reading and the Evening at Egan lecture were well attended. Thomas and Helen were honored at a Gathering of the Drums at the Noyes Pavilion following the Evening at Egan. They were given names and danced into their names. The One Campus, One Book committee appreciates everyone’s help in welcoming them to campus.
