Academy of Lifelong Learning

Learn at Lunch

Over the years we have featured talks by writers, historians, educators, environmentalists, politicians and artists. If someone is doing something of interest around the Chesapeake Bay, the chances are that he or she will give a Learn at Lunch lecture.

These informative lectures combine three ingredients: first, a serious and often provocative lecture by someone who knows the subject; second, an excellent lunch currently catered by Washington College Dining Services in the pleasant atmosphere of the Hynson Lounge on the college campus; and finally, a varied and attentive audience from the surrounding community. Come meet old friends and make new ones!
