Former WITS writer Stacy Parker Le Melle, who now lives and works in Harlem, will visit the San Jacinto College (SJC) South Campus for two important events on April 26. Before teaching with WITS, Le Melle served for five years in the Clinton White House as an intern in George Stephanopoulos’s office and as an assistant to Paul Begala. She also worked as a presidential advance person, planning presidential visits abroad to places such as Abuja, Ho Chi Minh City, Okinawa, New Delhi, Ankara, Cologne, Merida, Tokyo, St. Petersburg, and more.
Le Melle’s memoir Government Girl: Young and Female in the White House (Ecco/HarperCollins) was released to critical acclaim in 2010. Recent projects include creating The Katrina Experience: an Oral History Project and contributing to Voices from the Storm: The People of New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina and Its Aftermath (McSweeney’s).
Le Melle will present two lectures on Thursday, April 26 at 10:15 a.m. and 7 p.m. at the San Jacinto College South Campus in the Proscenium Theatre inside the Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Center. The South Campus is located at 13735 Beamer Road in Houston.
