David Scribner has worked for 36 years in newspapers and publications, most of that time at the highest editorial level of his organization. Currently the editor-in-chief of the Berkshire Edge, he served as editor-in-chief for ten years at The Berkshire Eagle, and for four years before that at The Middletown Press.
Professor Jeremy Yudkin of Lenox conceived the idea for the Distinguished Lecture Series in 2006. The lectures take place once a month, usually on the third Sunday of the month and are held at 4 pm on Sunday afternoons in the elegant and restful surroundings of the Sedgwick Reading Room. Sunday afternoon was chosen because it is a quiet time in most people’s weekends, the Library was not being utilized, and it allows time for audiences to attend the lectures and go home (or out) for dinner.
All lectures are free and open to the public thanks to the generosity of the speakers and donations from the public.
No reservations are required.
