As part of the University Librariesí Speaking of Books series, Dr. Hugo 
Keesing, former Professor in the American Studies department, will be 
discussing Next Stop is Vietnam: The War on Record 1961-2008, a 13-CD box 
set he has curated for Bear Family Records. The event will take place 
Tuesday, November 23, 4:30-6:00pm in the Michelle Smith Performing Arts 
Library Piano Room in the University's Clarice Smith Performing Arts 
Center. Itís free. Refreshments will be served. 

Dr. Keesing is the collector and donor of several collections that reside 
in MSPALís Special Collections in Performing Arts, all of which focus on 
popular music and culture. The box set in many ways represents a fusion of 
Dr. Keesingís interests in American history and in popular music. We are 
looking forward to hearing him speak about this project from his unique 
perspective.
