Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Indian independence leader Mohandas K. Gandhi, will hold a lunch conversation, book signing and evening lecture on Thursday, Jan. 19, at Bucknell University. The discussion and book signing will begin at noon in the Walls Lounge in the Elaine Langone Center, while the lecture will be in the ELC Forum at 7 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.

Few names in world history evoke such powerful images of integrity, courage and hope as Gandhi. Arun Gandhi has been a lifelong advocate of the principles embodied by his grandfather. He founded the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence and the Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute. At the lunch event, he will discuss and sign his book, titled Legacy of Love: My Education in the Path of Nonviolence.

These talks are part of Martin Luther King Jr. Week at Bucknell, a series of programming presented by the President's Diversity Council that is intended to engage campus and local communities in a weeklong conversation about Dr. King's legacy and philosophies and the ways we might address the seemingly intractable problems of violence, hatred and discrimination. This year's theme is Charleston, Rwanda and the Possibilities for Peace.
