Gaston Lecture September 20 - Wendy E. Simmons, Author of My Holiday in North Korea: The Funniest/Worst Place on Earth

Arkansas State University-Mountain Home (ASUMH) will host a presentation by Wendy E. Simmons for the fall Gaston Lecture at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20.  The Lecture will take place at the Vada Sheid Community Development Center (The Sheid) in the McClure Convention Center. A born explorer, Wendy Simmons was thrilled when she was granted a rare entry visa to North Korea, despite the country’s penchant for detaining tourists. In her book, My Holiday in North Korea: The Funniest/Worst Place on Earth, Wendy offers a glimpse of North Korea as it has never been seen before. For ten days, she hurtles through the country with two female “handlers.” During the Gaston Lecture presentation, Wendy will chronicle one of the strangest vacations ever through poignant and laugh-out-loud stories, accompanied by stunning photographs, and will offer a revealing glimpse into a secretive land.

Wendy won’t stop travelling until she visits every country in the world. Despite her hatred for packing, she’s managed to explore more than eighty-five so far – including territories and colonies – and chronicles her adventures on her blog, and on Huffington Post. Her writing has also been published by Travel & Leisure, PopSugar MSN and Yahoo. She is president of Vendeloo, a consultancy she founded in 2001, Chief Brand Officer of a NYC-based global eyewear brand, and an award-winning photographer. She graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from George Washington University.

The Gaston Lectures take place in The Sheid at ASUMH and are free and open to the public.  Jim and Jill Gaston endowed the ASUMH Gaston Lecture Series in 1997 to challenge individuals to think, reason and learn. On this first lecture since Jim Gaston’s passing in July, he will be missed greatly. The Gaston Lectures, which are held each fall and spring semester, will forever serve as a reminder of their generosity.
