SPJ members and student and professional journalists interested in joining SPJ are invited to an informal breakfast gathering with journalism educator and former Associated Press Mideast correspondent Terry Anderson, who was held hostage in Lebanon from 1985-1991. He will be in town speaking at the University of Kentucky and has agreed to chat over breakfast before he leaves. We will meet at 8 a.m. Wednesday, April 3, in the restaurant of the Campbell House Lexington, 1375 S. Broadway. We will be ordering from the regular menu, but please let Tom Eblen know if you plan to attend so we can reserve enough seating.
