The theme of this year's Public Affairs Conference at Missouri State University is the Culture of Connectivity. MSU Interim President Clif Smart talks about how connectivity is changing education and society.
This month, the Springfield-Greene County Library District is sponsoring “The Big Read,” a series of events that this year, relate to the book “The Maltese Falcon.” The idea behind “The Big Read” is to have a month-long celebration of a single, remarkable book, but also to encourage people to read. On Thursday, April 26th at 7pm, mystery author Ridley Pearson will be in Springfield to speak talk about his career and sign copies of his books. He’ll be speaking at Pythian Castle. The event is free, but tickets are required. KSMU’s Missy Shelton recently spoke with Pearson and files this report.
