Ringling College Library Association today announced newly rescheduled November 2020 dates for Town Hall lectures by Lisa Genova and Annie Leibovitz. Original dates for the two remaining lectures were suspended due to COVID-19 precautions. Subscriber tickets for both lectures will be honored.

Now scheduled for Monday, Nov. 9, neuroscientist Lisa Genova (also the New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice, Left Neglected and other books) will focus on neurological disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injury, autism, Huntington’s disease and ALS. Through fiction, she describes the journeys of those affected by such diseases.

Both lectures will be presented at Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, with two times: 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Subscribers unable to attend are encouraged to donate their tickets to Ringling College Library Association.
