Herrett Forum Lecture Series -
Fall 2020/Spring 2021

The Herrett Forum Lecture Series began in January, 2006. (A list of past lectures is available here.)  Programs on science, archaeology, history, music, art, and other topics of local interest are featured, by lecturers from around the world, many of whom have roots in our community.

Due to the need for social distancing, all Herrett Forum lectures for the 2020-21 season will be presented virtually via Zoom.  The link will be provided here on the day of each lecture.
