Borgata Foundation Supports ACCC Speakers Series Event

July 21, 2005

The Borgata Heart and Soul Foundation provided a $1,000 grant to help support the next event in the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation’s Martin L. Blatt Distinguished Speakers Series. Award-winning writer and composer James McBride, author of The Color of Water, will appear at the college on Tuesday, Nov. 15, for a lecture and jazz performance.

The Martin L. Blatt Distinguished Speakers Series brings prominent authors to the college, including former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, Joyce Carol Oates, Patricia O’Brien, Gay Talese, Pat Croce and Carol Gilligan.

The Nov. 15 lecture begins at 8 p.m. in the Walter Edge Theater at ACCC’s Mays Landing main campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike, and a book-signing follows at 9 p.m. Free tickets will be available in September by e-mailing lcampbel@atlantic.edu. For more information, call (609) 343-4909.
