Author Frederica Mathewes-Green will  speak at three colleges and a church in Abilene, Texas, in February. Appearances at the colleges will also include Dr. Diana Eck of Harvard Divinity School, and historian Dr. Tai Kreidler. The events are open to the public.

From the article:
In February, the three universities, as well as St. Luke Orthodox Church, will be visited by Mathewes-Green, who has been interviewed by such varied publications as The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek, Christian Science Monitor and many others.

She also has been on programs such as ABC's "PrimeTime Live," PBS' "Religion & Ethics Newsweekly," Fox News, and the 700 Club.

Her appearance in Abilene is thanks to Dr. Philip LeMasters, McMurry University religion professor and priest at St. Luke Orthodox Church.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

I hope sarcasm was implied.  I cannot stand her as an author or as a speaker.

Yes, what I have read and heard of hers, she seems very likeable.
