Welcome to the 2013-2014 Great Conversations Speaker Series! Presented by the College of Liberal Arts, the series includes four thought-provoking topics presented by distinguished research faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno. The quality of this year's speakers is unsurpassed. As a subscriber you will enjoy an evening of drinks, hors d'oeuvres and socializing, followed by participation in engaging conversation in a home of distinction in our community. Each evening is scheduled from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. beginning with hors d'oeuvres and drinks, followed by our guest speaker's presentation, questions and open group discussion. Each subscription is fully transferable. If you are unable to attend a particular conversation, you may invite other family members, friends or colleagues to be present.
