Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will begin a two-day visit to Southern California today by speaking at a $1,500- per-person luncheon fundraiser in Long Beach benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Long Beach.

On Wednesday, Clinton will deliver the third annual Luskin Lecture for Thought Leadership at UCLA's Royce Hall. She will also accept the UCLA Medal, the university's highest honor.

Following the lecture, Clinton will participate in a question-and-answer session with UCLA political science professor Lynn Vavreck.

The past lectures have been delivered by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan.

Tickets are $250 and $500. Proceeds benefit the greatest needs fund of UCLA's College of Letters and Science.
