6:00 PM Lecture: NAFTA and U.S.-Mexico Relations Ambassador Earl Anthony Wayne, former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico will be speaking.

U.S.-Mexico relations seem to be nearing an inflection point. Mexico's national elections will take place July 1. Nationalist Andrés Manuel López Obrador (known as AMLO)—seen by some as Mexico's answer to President Donald Trump—is running far ahead in opinion polls. A sweeping win by AMLO's left-wing, populist party, Morena, could mean implementation of policies feared by foreign investors and inimical to traditional U.S. positions. Mexico has responded to President Trump's recent decision to impose metal tariffs with retaliatory tariffs of its own. The Mexican government expressed disappointment with the U.S. tariff decision but reiterated its commitment to achieving a successful modernization of NAFTA. Many Mexican observers, however, see the tariff battle as placing the already difficult NAFTA negotiations in serious peril.

ˇ Will trade relations between the U.S. and Mexico break down?

ˇ Could that lead to an economic crisis in Mexico and/or a U.S. recession?

ˇ Will diplomatic relations unravel further if AMLO is elected and reacts more strenuously to President Trump's pronouncements about Mexico?

ˇ What will happen to bilateral cooperation against drug trafficking and gang violence?

Ambassador Earl Anthony Wayne, one of the most respected U.S. experts on Mexico, will help provide answers to some of these troubling questions.

Admission/Cost: $10 - $15

7:00 PM Stage: The King and I It is based on Margaret Landon's novel, Anna and the King of Siam (1944), which was derived from the memoirs of Anna Leonowens, governess to the children of King Mongkut of Siam in the early 1860s. The musical's plot relates the experiences of Anna, a British schoolteacher hired as part of the King's drive to modernize his country. The relationship between the King and Anna is marked by conflict through much of the piece, as well as by a love to which neither can admit.

Age Limit: 21+

Admission/Cost: $45 - $95
