Dr. Kevin Shirley can’t help but agree when someone says, “You make history come alive.” The veteran professor isn’t being immodest. “History seems alive because history is alive!” he said. “It’s a living, breathing thing.

He aims to demonstrate that “aliveness” as kickoff speaker for 3D Journeys, LaGrange College’s travel and lecture series which begins its 13th season on Monday, Jan. 23, at 10 a.m., in Callaway Auditorium.

An optional May trip to Tuscany will be hosted by President Susanna Baxter and First Gentleman Mark Huffman.
