Indiana University East will host a book signing for former Richmond resident Peg Goldberg Longstreth from 4-5 p.m. on Monday, April 20 in The Gallery, located in Whitewater Hall.
Chancellor Emeritus David Fulton said, “I was very pleased when Peg told me that she was planning a visit to Indiana and that IU East would host her for a book signing on campus. She is a remarkably talented artist and wonderful representative of both Richmond and Indiana in her adopted State. Her late husband, Joe Longstreth, an equally talented artist, was a major figure in the cultural life of Richmond for many years. They maintained a close working relationship with IU East art faculty and students once they set up shop in Naples. I hope that many local people will come out to say hello to Peg and pick up a copy of her newest work. It is sure to be a delight.”
