January Speakers: Bestselling Novelist and Major Sports Photographer The university community will be treated in January to presentations from two creative individuals who chronicle very different aspects of American life.
Both presentations will be held in the Student Community Center on the main campus, and both are free and open to the public.
Best-selling author Dennis Lehane will speak and sign books at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 13. Lehane is well-known for his mystery and crime novels, including "Mystic River," which was turned into a film by Clint Eastwood.
Lehane's newest work is an historical novel set in Boston after World War I, called "The Given Day." His appearance is sponsored by Saint Leo University's Department of English, Fine Arts and Humanities.

The following week, as football fans nationwide anticipate Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa on Feb. 1, the university community will be treated to a video memoir by football photographer Wayne Paulo.
Paulo's presentation, "An Englishman's Road to the Super Bowl," tracks his career, including his work on six Super Bowl games.
Paulo will speak at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 21, in the Student Community Center. His presentation is sponsored by Saint Leo University's Distinguished Speakers Series.
Saint Leo's main campus is located at 33701 State Road 52, four miles east of Interstate 75 (Exit 285). Parking is available on campus.
