Brown Bag Lunch Series

Dr. Graham Daborn speaking at a seminarEvery week, we invite ALL members and members of our local community to join us for a free, casual lunchtime learning session.

Brown Bag Lunches are meant to offer you a slice of life while you enjoy a slice of your meal. We cover topics both big and small in scope, from local to international, and from arts to sciences. We aim to offer lively talks, from engaging speakers, that anyone in the audience can enjoy. And yes, many members do actually bring their lunch to eat during the presentation.

We meet every Thursday at noon in Seminary House, Room 229 (main level). Alternate locations are noted in the schedule.
