GREENCASTLE -

One of the stars of "The Office" will speak to students at DePauw University. Screen Actors Guild Award winner Jenna Fischer will visit the Greencastle campus in April as part of the Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lecture Series.

DePauw says Fischer, who was nominated for an Emmy award for her role as Pam on "The Office," will be discussing her book The Actor's Life: A Survival Guide, as well as her various experiences in acting. 

The program will take place April 17 in Kresge Auditorium in the Green Center for the Performing Arts on DePauw's campus. It is free and open to the public with seating coming on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fischer will be the fourth speaker in the Ubben Lecture Series for the 2017-2018 academic year. The others included Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and ESPN Founder Bill Rasmussen, who spoke in September and November, respectively. The third lecture, from David Hanson, CEO of Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics and his artificial intelligence android, Sophia, will take place next week.

The Ubben Lecture Series was established in 1986 and has featured major names such as Bill Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, Spike Lee, Mikhail Gorbachev and General Colin Powell. You can learn more about the lecture series by clicking here.
