- February 19 – “Lenox at 250, Session I.” Special panel discussion on the first half of Lenox’s history (1767-1880). Panel I to include Charles Flint and Lucy Kennedy (early history), Carole Owens (1750-1800), Bernard Drew (mid-19th century). Audience participation encouraged!
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.
