Sister Helen Prejean of the Congregation of St. Joseph, internationally known for her book "Dead Man Walking," will share her remarkable story during a special presentation at 7:00 p.m., February 4 in the Howard Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Louisiana Tech University.
Prejean's presentation, "Dead Man Walking: The Journey Continues," is sponsored by Louisiana Tech's First-Year Experience program and the Union Board, and is a part of the This I Believe Speaker Series. She will share her beliefs in relation to the death penalty and how those beliefs have dramatically shaped her life.
Two of Prejean's books, "Dead Man Walking" and "Death of Innocents," are on sale at Barnes and Noble at Louisiana Tech and in the Howard Center for the Performing Arts, prior to the event. A book signing will take place in the lobby of the Howard Center following the event.
