2017 Lecture Series


What's the Lecture Series all about?  A lot of interesting people call Sharon Springs home, and a lot of interesting people who live nearby have a special interest in our community.  We have asked some of them to participate in the 2017 Lecture Series, a chance for you to hear extraordinary people talk about extraordinary things -- and a chance to support Klinkhart Hall Arts Center, Inc.

This year you will get to hear from literary luminaries Paul Muldoon and Jean Hanff Korelitz, Dr. Richard Pfau on Contemporary Foreign Policy, also food writer and memoirist Kat Kinsman, historian Nancy Pfau on Diversity in Sharon Springs from Native American to Today, and Dr. J.B. Goss on the Metaphysics of Science.

Dates, time and details for future events will be posted here and on our Facebook page.

Goss.  (Dr. Goss delivered the first Klinkhart Hall lecture in 2015 on Sleeping and Dreaming: The Owner's Manual.) Read more about the speaker here.

We will explore fascinating facts about ESP, Reiki, Gaia, and the human brain (as well as the latest on dreams.)"
