VOICES Reunion Tour

Stuck at home? Inject a little inspiration into your routine with VOICES

Social distancing is temporarily preventing us from hosting public lectures. Yet, most of us are craving intelligent conversations and fresh perspectives more than ever. The VOICES Reunion Tour gives you the opportunity to hear from past speakers of the VOICES Lectures in a monthly series of interactive online events.

This is what we know so far:

  • We will be using ZOOM, so we will require email addresses for all participants. We will send you information how to access the sessions via ZOOM prior to each event.
  • If you are a current subscriber, you will automatically be enrolled at no additional charge.
  • Each presenter will be speaking for at least 15 minutes. Subscribers will have the opportunity to pose questions in advance and/or during the event. Event specifics may vary based on the speaker.
  • Each session will bes hosted by Francine Read in her “virtual office” with tech support by Maria Sorrentino/ComputerPal.
  • The VOICES Reunion Tour is free to all subscribers who renew for the 2020-2021 season by July 1, 2020.
  • Tickets are available to non-subscribers for the entire series ($79) or for individual events ($10 each).

The Tour will kick-off on Thursday, June 11, at 11am, PST with Ruth Wariner, author of The Sound of Gravel, a riveting portrayal of her experiences growing up in the LeBaron polygamist community in Mexico. Ruth will also share her insights on the November 5, 2019 attack on the LeBaron family, in which gunman believed to be members of organized crime ambushed their vehicles.
