Johns Hopkins University will host a former North Korean detainee, the hiker whose accident was adapted into the movie "127 Hours," and actors from "Breaking Bad" and "The Office," among several other speakers this fall.
The university's annual Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium will feature journalist Laura Ling, who was detained in North Korea in 2009; former National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon; hiker Aron Ralston; RJ Mitte, who played Flynn on "Breaking Bad"; and B.J. Novak, who played Ryan on "The Office."
The lecture series, which was started in 1967 and is run by undergraduate students on the Homewood campus, begins with Ralston's lecture on Sept. 17 and concludes with Novak's on Nov. 5. It is free and open to the public; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserved seats available for $25. More information: web.jhu.edu/msesymposium/
