    Lewis Paul Bremer III will share his insight into what he experienced during his tenure as presidential envoy to Iraq at 5:30 in the Ed Landreth Hall Auditorium.Ambassador Bremer was named presidential envoy to Iraq by President Bush May 6, 2003. He served in that position until Iraqi sovereignty was restored June 28, 2004.

    Bremer is currently on tour around the United States promoting his new book “My Year In Iraq: The Struggle to Build a Future of Hope.”

    “He was the person who was responsible to rebuild Iraq,” said Margaret Kelly, director of special projects for Marketing and Communications.

    This event is important because the Dallas/Fort Worth area, along with New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C., are the only cities where Bremer will appear in person, Kelly said.

    Bremer will lecture and answer questions for about an hour before signing books.

    The event was organized by TCU in conjunction with The World Affairs Council of D/FW.

    Admission for students with ID cards is free. Tickets are $20 for the public.
