Bachman named commonwealth speaker

Bill Bachman, Communications Arts and Sciences instructor at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, was recently selected to serve as a Commonwealth Speaker for the Pennsylvania Humanities Council for the upcoming 2010-2011 year of the program.

Beginning in January 2010, Bachman will tour Pennsylvania and offer an abbreviated version of his “Frances Slocum: Child of Two Americas” program, opening the floor to discussion and exchange with the audience.

The film, which Bachman wrote, directed and co-produced, highlights the life of the real Frances Slocum, a young Quaker girl abducted from her family in Wilkes-Barre on November 2, 1778.
