Columbian author  Ingrid Betancourt was kidnapped by rebels and spent six years living in captivity in the Columbian jungle. She’ll tell her story of persecution and activism at 7 p.m. on March 28 at Gonzaga’s McCarthey Athletic Center.

She’ll discuss her ongoing efforts to free more than 700 people who remain hostages in Colombia.

The lecture is part of the Presidential Speaker Series.  Tickets for the event are $10 for the public, $7 for senior citizens and $5 for students and employees of any educational institution and can be purchased  online.
