Lofland to speak about the Middle East

Betty Baerg Lofland will be speaking Friday at Lifelong Learning about her 35-year teaching experience in the Middle East and China. She evacuated twice from Beirut and fled from Tehran when Khomeini returned.

The session begins at 9:45 a.m. in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center at Tabor College. The fee is $4 per session or $15 per semester, payable at the door.

Lofland and her husband now live in Pasadena, Calif. for six months of the year while spending the other six months in Macao, China. She grew up in Kansas, attended Tabor College in 1948-49 and graduated from McPherson College with a major in English Literature. She earned a master’s degree in Middle East history from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut.
