The Learning Society of Queens

The Learning Society of Queens is a dynamic semiannual speaker series presented by Queens University of Charlotte. Selected by Charlotte Magazine as the 2015 "Best of The Best" public lecture, the Learning Society began hosting nationally-known speakers in 1988. These lectures are made possible by over 150 dedicated members and select sponsors. Recent speakers have included Michael Lewis, Bob Woodruff, Ben Stein, Robert Kennedy, Jr., Thomas Friedman, Dr. Andrew Weil, Fareed Zakaria, Doris Kearns Goodwin and Dr. Condoleezza Rice. Speaker visits include an afternoon lecture for Queens' students, an exclusive reception with select university guests, an evening lecture open to the community and a private Learning Society member and sponsor reception with the speaker following the evening lecture.
