LEWISTON - Discover more about Lewiston-Auburn's diverse immigrant population when Museum L-A's popular "Voices" lecture series continues at 7 p.m. on June 10 with "Journey to America, Weaving a Cultural Tapestry." It is the second of a three-part series being held in conjunction with the Museum's current exhibit "Rivers of Immigration: Peoples of the Androscoggin."

Featured speakers are Mexican, Somali, Sudanese, Somali Bantu and Chinese neighbors who now call the Twin Cities their home. They will share how they came to resettle in Maine and some of the challenges and benefits of their relocation.

Museum L-A's 2010 "Voices" lecture series is being presented free of charge and underwritten by Androscoggin Bank. Museum L-A is located at 35 Canal Street in the Bates Mill Complex - at the corner of Canal and Chestnut streets. For more information, please call 207-333-3881 or email info@museumla.org
