Media will have an opportunity to meet with the two men at 9 a.m. May 15 at D.C. Bottoms in the Durrell Center on the Colorado State campus. After visiting with the media, Sutherland and Anderson will continue with a reception and book signing open to the public.

Sutherland is a well-known figure in Colorado, first joining Colorado State in the department of animal sciences in 1958. For 25 years he was professor of animal science at Colorado State, where he received many honors as an outstanding teacher. Sutherland was released from captivity on
Nov. 18, 1991. He and his wife, Jean, wrote the novel, "At Your Own Risk," which describes their experiences.
Anderson, author of "Den of Lions," is an associate professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. He writes a weekly column syndicated by the King Feature Syndicate and is a nationally known speaker on political and social affairs, the Middle East, journalism and government
reform. "Den of Lions," which Anderson wrote with his wife, Madeleine Bassil, was a national best seller which told the story of Anderson’s seven years in captivity.
For graduation ceremonies, we also will distribute during the next week a media pass that will provide access to the Moby Arena and the media reception, and a media parking pass that will enable you to park in a reserved parking area immediately adjacent to Moby Arena.
