For busy people who like to read
The Heliconian Literary Lecture Series will run from September 2012 until May 2013.
This popular series has been described as a cross between a traditional book club and a university course without exams. This year it will consist of two separate series with eight sessions, each including refreshments, a lecture, and a question period. The doors will open at 6:45 p.m. with lectures beginning at 7:30. Subscription cost for non-members of the Heliconian Club is $150, (members of the Heliconian Club $130). You will be sent tickets for each evening of the series you select, and all tickets will be mailed in August.
For more information please contact the Heliconian Club.
