Honeywell House to host program on life in Pakistan by AU prof

The Honeywell House in Wabash will host a program on life in Pakistan given by Anderson University Professor Emeritus Patricia Bennett on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m.

This event is sponsored by corporate sponsor Hidden Hollows Retreat.

Dr. Bennett developed and led student nurse cultural experiences in Pakistan, India and Brazil during her 18-year tenure as chair of the Anderson University Nursing Department.

She will talk about her experiences in Pakistan when she lived with a Pakistani Hospital administrator's family. She will also describe her view of the Pakistani culture including family life, medical care, religious life and political struggles.

Bennett's presentation will also include one of her more memorable flights with students when they were under military guard while going through the Karachi airport after the state department had closed Pakistan to United States visitors.

The program will complement the Honeywell Center concert featuring Qawal Najmuddin Saifuddin & Brothers of Pakistan on Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m., presented as part of Arts Midwest World Fest.

Due to limited seating those wishing to attend the event are asked to make reservations by calling 563-2326, ext. 21.
