His past professional credits include experience as administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, chair of the U.N. Development Group, professor of law at Georgetown University, and chair of the U.S. Council on Environmental Quality during the Carter administration. Speth recently published Angels by the River, a memoir about growing up in Orangeburg, S.C.

Albert George II is the first director of conservation for the South Carolina Aquarium and co-founder of the Amazon Reforestation Project. George completed his B.S. in marine biology and chemistry from Savannah State University, and he studied physiology cellular molecular genetics at Yale University. He also earned an MBA from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a master’s degree in public policy with a concentration in science and technology policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

Attendees are invited to participate in a question and answer session after the discussion. Speth will sign copies of Angels by the River, and a portion of book sale proceeds will support Charleston Friends of the Library.
