The Margaret Chase Smith Library invites you to a presentation on the Afghan refugee resettlement program on Friday, January 20th at noontime. Our speaker will be Mehr Sher. Ms. Sher is the new statewide environmental reporter on the investigative desk for the Bangor Daily News, as well as a Report for America corps member. She brings a global perspective to the topic, having served as a journalist in Pakistan for six years. She received her bachelor’s degree in International Relations at North Carolina State University and earned a master’s in investigative reporting from the Columbia School of Journalism.

Because of Ms. Sher’s work schedule and the uncertainty of winter weather in Maine, the event will be held via Zoom. You can register by filling out the Google form at the following site: https://forms.gle/cwdUBdiZHnsYKgQZ9.

A Zoom link will be sent to you before the lecture.
