Paul Loeb, a writer who has spent more than 30 years researching citizen responsibility and empowerment, will deliver a lecture at 6 p.m. Oct. 24 in the theater of A.K. Hinds University Center at Western Carolina University. The event is free and open to the public.
Loeb is the author of “Soul of a Citizen” and “The Impossible Will Take a Little While” and co-author of the essay “My Vote Doesn’t Matter.”
In 2008, he created and coordinated the Campus Election Engagement Project, a nonpartisan effort to encourage college and university students to vote and participate in the election. Loeb is running the project again for 2012.
