Summer Speaker Series

We are excited to partner with The Community Library to expand our outreach efforts in 2021 and offer four free talks to the local community this July. Open to the public, the talks will be live and in-person, outdoors with spaced seating at The Community Library on the 4th Street Lawn area in Ketchum and will begin at 7:00 PM.
Online registration is required.
Sign-ups will open and links will be posted here at 7:00 AM on May 24.
See below for book pre-sales information for each speaker. There will not be in-person book signings, but books will be collected for signing at each event and available for pick-up at The Community Library within a few days,
