Richard Preston, best-selling author, investigative journalist to deliver Larry Adair Lectureship at NSU - Feb. 25
Some call it intuition; some call it a sixth sense. Whatever the case may be, Richard Preston has it and Northeastern State University wants in on his insight. With the recent Ebola scare and Preston’s eerie predictions more than 20 years ago, Richard Preston has been selected to deliver this year’s Larry Adair lectureship on Wednesday, February 25 at 11 a.m. at the Webb Auditorium in Tahlequah, Okla.
Preston is the author of the international best-seller “The Hot Zone,” a non-fiction look into the origins of Ebola and other threatening rain forest viruses. He is also the author of “The Cobra Event,” “The Demon in the Freezer,” “The Wild Trees” and most recently, he co-authored “Micro,” Michael Crichton’s latest technological thriller. He is also a regular contributor to “The New Yorker,” and has been honored with the Champion of Prevention Award from the Center of Disease Control.
