Our 52nd season wrapped up with a moving talk by Carolyn Finney on August 22. Her talk, along with the other seven from this season, remain available for your viewing or listening pleasure. Just scroll down and click on the “Video” or “Audio” link for the speaker you would like to hear. We hope you will be informed, engaged, and inspired by them.

The Lyceum Committee begins work in September on putting together another fine season for the summer of 2022. If you have suggestions for speakers we should invite or topics we should address, please send them to us using the contact form on this website.

We hope that next year we will be able to gather once again at Peterborough’s historic Unitarian Universalist Church and enjoy live music and a thought-provoking presentation, followed by stimulating conversation with each other at the reception after the talk. But whether our speakers are here in person or join us online, we intend to continue live-streaming the events.

Our Lyceum Committee thanks each of you for your participation and support during the 2021 season, and we look forward to your continuing with us next year. If you are new to the Lyceum, we welcome you. We hope you will appreciate the varied and fascinating topics offered by our speakers for your enlightenment and inspiration. To be kept abreast of news about the Monadnock Lyceum, please provide your email address in the space provided at the bottom of this page.

We’ll see you in 2022.
