The Log Cabin Democrat Distinguished Lecture Series opens at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the University of Central Arkansas Reynolds Performance Hall. Erin Brockovich will be the first speaker. She was a file clerk in a lawyer’s office when she found medical records that led to a lawsuit and a $333 million settlement for residents of a Nevada town who were poisoned by contaminated water. Her story became a movie starring Julia Roberts in the title role. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and children, $5 for UCA faculty and staff and free for UCA students with a current ID.
