MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Costa Rica’s president is scheduled to give a Landon Lecture at Kansas State University.

Luis Guillermo Solis will speak May 19 at the Manhattan campus. The university says he will be the second Costa Rican president to give a Landon Lecture, joining Oscar Arias Sanchez who spoke in 1987.

Solis also has served in other political posts and published more than 10 books.

The lecture series is named for former Kansas Gov. Alf Landon, who was the 1936 Republican nominee for president. The series was established in 1966 to bring in speakers to discuss issues facing business, politics and international relations.
