COLLEGEVILLE PA – Leading Saudi Arabian authority Robert Lacey, whose new book titled “Inside the Kingdom” traces the history of U.S.-Saudi relations, will be the featured speaker Oct. 15 (2009; Thursday) at 4:30 p.m. in the Kaleidoscope Lenfest Theater at Ursinus College, Main Street, Collegeville PA.

The historian, author and British journalist will deliver the college’s Wright Lecture on Middle Eastern Affairs.

Lacey’s new book, a follow-up to his 1981 study of Saudi Arabia titled “The Kingdom: Arabia and The House of Sa’ud,” will be released Oct. 19. Copies will be available after the Ursinus lecture.

The Wright Lecture was established in 2006 by Walter Livingston Wright III, a 1954 alumnus of Ursinus, to provide enhanced opportunities for student and faculty enrichment in Middle Eastern affairs.
