The Monadnock Summer Lyceum committee is busy preparing for the upcoming season of informative, engaging, and inspiring speakers. The speakers are confirmed and we are readying publicity for announcement of the season at the beginning of May. If you would like to be among the first to learn about this year’s roster of speakers, please join our mailing list by providing your email address in the space indicated below.

Just as last year, you can attend the talks in person at the Peterborough Unitarian Universalist Church at 25 Main Street in Peterborough or tune in online. Music by local performers will begin at 10:30 a.m., with the speaker introduced at 11 a.m. on each Sunday morning when a Lyceum is occurring. Masks are suggested for those attending in person.

If you can't wait until June for a Lyceum presentation, you can still hear what previous speakers had to say by clicking on the “video” or “audio” link associated with each speaker in our archive of past speakers. The audio file can be downloaded to a mobile device if you want to listen to the talk offline, perhaps while driving or walking. Videos from the last three seasons and audio files going back to 2012 are available.

Thank you so much for your interest in and support of the Monadnock Summer Lyceum through your attendance and donations. We rely on you to sustain the Lyceum and welcome donations at any time. You can give online using the Donate button just below or mail a check to the address at the bottom of this page.

We look forward to seeing you this summer.
