On Thursday, June 3, at 8:00 p.m., KU Libraries host a special lecture entitled, "My Identity Through '80s Music: Why I Love the Boy" at the Oread Hotel.

The lecture, by instruction and outreach librarian Tami Albin, is a critical look at what '80s music means to Albin. As she states in the press release, "When I was 16, I could not critically look at a Culture Club video. Now, I can step back to critique it -- and still enjoy it all the more."

Following the lecture will be an '80s dance night in the Oread's basement club the Cave. The lecture is free and open to the public, but you need to RSVP by May 31 to Rebecca Smith at rasmith@ku.edu or (785) 864-1761.
