The Ringling College Library Association produces the highly anticipated and widely respected TOWN HALL Series at the Van Wezel each winter. 2024 will mark the 43rd installment of the TOWN HALL Lecture Series. For more than 40 years, over 200 speakers have participated in TOWN HALL. Our presentations have included some of the most engaging, influential, entertaining, and educational speakers in the world. We welcome these speakers to Sarasota to stimulate, inspire, and inform our community every season.
In an area known for its arts and culture, TOWN HALL is among the many assets and known for producing presentations that are innovative, compelling and often “one and only” events that can’t be seen anywhere else. This rich history means our patrons have incredibly high expectations for each new season, and we do our best to bring in speakers who bring something unique and special to Sarasota.
