The lectures—virtual through 2021—take place quarterly, on Saturday mornings, at 11 a.m. Central Time. These short Zoom sessions (between 15–30 minutes) provide members an intimate opportunity to meet our expert staff and ask questions related to lecture series topics. The Williams Lecture Series is a members-only series and requires advance registration. A link to a recording of the event will be sent to those who register.
