Guest Speaker:

Jacqueline Gore, retired teacher

Jacqueline Gore returns to The Oaks with a review of the riveting true story of the worst sea disaster in United States naval history. Written by Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic, this definitive account tells the story of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis after a classified mission in July 1945. Only 316 will ultimately survive. Yet there is more to the story than the sinking of the ship and the men?s rescue. For more than 50 years, the survivors fight for justice on behalf of their skipper.

Guest Speaker:

Alexander Mikaberidze, PhD, Ruth Herring Noel Endowed Chair for the Curatorship of the James Smith Noel Collection

Northwest Louisiana has more stories than anyone can tell but how do these stories survive? Through a special collection of books, documents, photos and more, our area's history is saved in the James Smith Noel Collection of items housed at LSU Shreveport's Noel Memorial Library. Alexander Mikaberidze, PhD, history professor at LSUS, will give guests at The Oaks insight into some of the collection's most interesting and exciting items. Join us for a unique discussion about how these trinkets in time made their way to their final home in the library.
