Lecture Series at Klinkhart Hall Arts Center


SPECIAL NOTE: At this time we are rethinking the lecture series as part of our programming. You can read about past events in the lecture series below, and check back here for updates on future plans.


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.  From time to time we ask some of them to participate in the Lecture Series, which gives you a chance to hear extraordinary people talk about extraordinary things -- and a chance to support Klinkhart Hall Arts Center, Inc.
