— In cooperation with the Cazenovia Public Library and The Manlius Library, Cazenovia College begins the ninth season of its Faculty Library Lecture Series: “Great Minds/Great Ideas.”

The 2012-13 series begins on Sept. 11 with noted faculty members from Cazenovia College discussing the lives and work of important thinkers who opened doors of opportunity for the human spirit.

The Great Minds/Great Ideas Library Lecture Series is made possible through the generous support of Doris Webster, class of 1946.

All lectures begin at 7 p.m., and ample time for questions and conversation will follow each lecture. Each lecture will be repeated at the other library on Tuesday, Oct. 9. The complete schedule is on the web at cazenovia.edu/greatminds.

At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11 in the Cazenovia Public Library, “Paula Scher and Typography: Creating the Voice of Design,” will be presented by Andrea Hempstead, a visiting instructor of visual communications. Typography is the study and creation of letterforms, used to give a voice to visual communications.

Many graphic designers consider Scher to be a pioneer and advocate in the continuing evolution of typography. From album covers to identities and from posters to environmental signage, Scher has redefined and pushed the boundaries of visual communication. She has not only created many voices for design through her unique style but has also given a voice to women designers.

Hempstead received a master’s degree in business administration from Le Moyne College and a Bachelor of Science degree in graphic design from North Carolina State University College of Design. She has taught at Cazenovia College since 2009. Her previous professional experience includes more than ten years in advertising design, web design and user experience design.

At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11 in the Manlius Library, “George H.W. Bush: How could a president have won a war and lost a reelection?” will be presented by historian Dr. John Robert Greene.
