Bob Dole to speak at McKimmon Center

submitted by ToiletPaper on Monday, April 18 at 3:08 AM

Former United States Senator Bob Dole will give a special reading on April 29, 2005, sponsored by the Friends of the Library of North Carolina State University and Quail Ridge Books and Music. The event starts at 7:00 P.M.. in the McKimmon Center. He will discuss his new book, One Soldier's Story, A Memoir, on the sixtieth anniversary of his being wounded in World War II.

In One Soldier's Story, Dole describes his World War II service as a platoon leader in the famed Tenth Mountain Division. He was gravely wounded two weeks before the end of the war. Over the next three years, he lapsed in and out of a coma, lost a kidney, and lost the use of his right arm and most of the feeling in his left arm.

Tickets to the event are $5, but NCSU students with a valid student ID will be admitted for free. Tickets may be obtained in the Friends office in the D. H. Hill Library (Room 2116, second floor, East Wing) or at the main circulation desk (limit of two tickets per student). Anyone who purchases a copy of the book at Quail Ridge Books and Music in Ridgewood Shopping Center will receive a free ticket.

For additional information about the event, please call the Friends of the Library office at 515-2841 between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., Monday through Friday.

"I don't go around saying Bob Dole does this and Bob Dole does that - that's not something Bob Dole does."

Bob Dole is fucking hilarious. He used to go on The Daily Show all the time and KILL, then they got cred and moved on to bigger peeps. I think I'll go, even if it means sacrificing my Life Aquatic/Royal Tenenbaums big screen double feature.

How do you get bigger than Bob Dole in a political circuit?

Kerry, Edwards, McCain, Clinton, etc. Basically, the only people who could possibly be bigger than Dole, current presidential/vice presidential candidates (at the time) and a former president.
