First Wednesdays

A Humanities Lecture Series, October through May

First Wednesdays

This eclectic lecture series offers talks in nine towns on the first Wednesday of the month, October through May. Topics are varied, timely, timeless, thought-provoking, and fun.

All First Wednesdays talks are free and open to the public, and are held at libraries and other venues in each host community.
