Four Amazing Women

Four Incredible Stories

Francine Read
Celebrating 30 Years


VOICES Lectures turns 30 this season, continuing to showcase extraordinary women from around the world. For our third decade in Portland, we are excited to announce our move to Revolution Hall, an upgrade to the lecture experience with restaurants and bars inside and parking near the facility.

The new venue offers a great friends’ night out, with several restaurants onsite and ample parking nearby. The Show Bar, Marthas, and the Assembly Lounge open at 5pm on all show nights. The Roof Deck Bar, with the best views in the city, is open seasonally April thru October.

Join us for another fabulous season!

Francine B. Read, President
