News & Happenings

POSTPONED – The lecture by bestselling author, Min Jin Lee that was originally scheduled for Monday, March 16 at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, has been postponed after thorough consideration and consultation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The date is to be determined and will take place in the coming months. An email was sent to the name we have on a subscriber’s account with a request to forward to all who may be attending. This was not an easy decision, but the health and wellbeing of our valued subscribers, guests, partners and friends is our main priority as we navigate through this situation. The 2020/21 Season will be announced in Subscriber Renewal packets and here on the website in mid-April.
