Ringling College Library Association announced plans to resume the TOWN HALL Lecture series with speakers postponed due to Coronavirus. "We are so excited to be back, live and in-person to present our long-awaited two remaining lectures of our 2020 season. Lisa and Annie will certainly surprise and delight our audiences with the kinetic discourse our premier lecture series has been providing for more than 40 years," said Emily Walsh, RCLA President. 

Presenting on Monday, November 1 st , renowned neuroscientist, Lisa Genova, will focus on neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury, autism, Huntington's disease, and ALS. She is the New York Times bestselling author of “Still Alice,” “Left Neglected,” “Love Anthony,” and her newly released book “Remember”. Through fiction, she is dedicated to describing the journeys of those affected by neurological diseases, thereby educating, demystifying, and inspiring support for care and scientific research. Presenting on Monday, November 15, renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz will give a talk on her long career in journalism and the arts. A former chief photographer for Rolling Stone, her pictures have appeared regularly on magazine covers since the 1970s. As an astute documentarian of the social landscape, she developed a large body of work at Vanity Fair, and later at Vogue, including portraits of actors, directors, writers, musicians, athletes, and political and business figures, as well as fashion photographs.

All TOWN HALL lectures take place at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center. All proceeds from the TOWN HALL series support the Alfred R. Goldstein Library on the campus of Ringling Collge of Art and Design and the RCLA scholarship fund. For details, please visit: Rclassociationg.org Learn more about TOWN HALL and to purchase tickets visit at rclassociation.org, or call 941-309-5101.
