Evening at Egan-Season Underway

Fall marks the beginning of the Evening at Egan public lectures for the season. For years, the University of Alaska Southeast Juneau campus has been host to academics, dignitaries and visiting lecturers and made their presentations open to the public at the Egan Lecture Hall. Now, 360 North will join UATV to make these events available to Alaskans across the state on television.
