UU Biographies

Date: Monday, March 06, 2017 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a series of PowerPoint lectures with short biographies of Unitarians and Universalists, one letter at a time. With this format, each talk stands on its own, but after a few talks you'll have a good overview of UU history.

The biographies are often funny, often inspiring, sometimes scandalous. Talks are organised into sections: Arts, Science, Government, Education, Religion, and (my favourite) Agents of Change. Within each section, we go from oldest to youngest by birthday, to get a sense of what happened when.

Each talk is about an hour, so sessions are about 90 minutes with discussion.

John has collecting these stories for 7 years and has made it to letter K. He is going to make it exactly 26 talks by hook or by crook, but not one per letter; there are two talks for B, three for C, and so on. Rooms to be announced.
