Are you a lifelong learner? Are you thrilled by "light bulb" moments. Did you choose your own adventure novels as a child? Did you go back and sift through all the possible outcomes?
Manhattan Lectures & Conversations is a group of knowledge seekers and volunteers looking for engaging conversations and lectures across NYC ranging from the eclectic to the mainstream. The vision is to connect people with a love for learning, old and young, singles and couples, boroughs and islanders alike, in a way that fosters both community and growth.
NYC has some of the greatest minds on earth coursing through it on a daily basis, so let's take advantage of that fact and get our learn on!
Additionally, we will have coffee and discussion after each lecture for those who are interested.
