Meet Frederic Murphy, a Penn’s Village member and professor emeritus at the Fox School of Business, Temple University. Fred has been traveling to Riyadh 4-5 times per year, one month each time, for the past six years, where he has been a visiting scholar at the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center. This center is the Kingdom's think tank on energy policy. While there, he has traveled in Riyadh and its environs and visited Jeddah. He will use photographs he has taken to illustrate the culture and physical environment of the country. 


We will meet in the MacColl Room on the second floor First Presbyterian Church, 201 S. 21st Street, entrance on 21st Street. The church is handicapped accessible; kindly let us know in advance if this is needed. 


Please register by emailing info@pennsvillage.org or by calling 215-925-7333. There is no charge for Penn’s Village members and volunteers. We would appreciate a $5 donation from other guests. Other guests are welcome to attend three programs before joining and/or volunteering.
