Actress and comedian Tina Fey is headed to the University of Virginia this fall to kick off a brand new speaker series highlighting the arts.
Fey will appear on September 14, as the inaugural speaker for the President's Speaker Series for the Arts. The series is designed to show the positive impact of the arts on society.
“I am very excited to come back to Charlottesville to participate in the President’s Speaker Series for the Arts in September,” Fey said. “When I left Charlottesville in the early ’90s, there was a large sign on Route 29 that said, ‘The bagels are coming!’ Did that ever happen?”
Details on attending the speech will be released at a later date.
Tina Fey graduated from UVa's College of Arts and Sciences in 1992.
