Kathy McAuley, director of the Lehigh Valley Film & Video Council, will discuss her career path and field 12:15 p.m. Tuesday in Williams Center for the Arts room 108.

Pizza and beverages will be provided for the event, which is part of the Arts Careers Exploration Series, a program of informal discussions designed to introduce students to the spectrum of non-performance careers in the arts. The series is presented by the Arts Society.

McAuley began her career as a “women’s pages” reporter at a Chicago newspaper. After a family move to the Lehigh Valley, she joined TheMorning Call, where she worked for 21 years, first as a writer and later as assistant managing editor and marketing director. She worked at Lehigh University as a writer for eight years. In “retirement,” McAuley founded the Lehigh Valley Film and Video Council and her own business, Lehigh Valley Locations and Extras, which scouts locations and casts movie extras.

Her interests include photography, film, vintage clothing, and archaeology, which she says she would choose as a career if she could start over again.

The next talk in the series will feature Michiko Okaya, director of the Williams Center Art Gallery and curator of Lafayette’s art collection, 12:15 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 16.
