Winter Weekend is an evening and a day of stimulating conversations around a book. Scholars present their expertise, delving into history, literature, politics, and more. They build bridges between themes, times, places, and people. Winter Weekend is an adventure for the mind—and a warm and welcoming community where the camaraderie draws back many audience members year after year.
