TOWN HALL SERIES

92nd SEASON

2016 - 2017

 

 

When the Akron Woman's City Club was founded in 1923, one of its primary goals was to provide a forum for educating members about events taking place in the world. Some of the well-known early lecturers and guests were Grand Duchess Marie of Austria; the honorable Nellie Tayloe Ross of Wyoming, this country's first woman governor; Louise Thayden, famous woman aviatrix and winner of the First Women's Air Derby from Santa Monica, CA to Cleveland in 1929; Edgar Guest, well-known homespun poet; Alice Roosevelt Longworth; Drew Pearson; and Lowell Thomas. In addition, the Club sponsored many musical programs and seminars.

Today Town Hall Series carries on this proud tradition for the Akron Woman's City Club. You do not need to be a member of the Club to enjoy these programs. As we embark upon our 92nd season, here is your personal invitation to join us for this season's outstanding series.

Season tickets are $40 for Club members and $45 for non-Club members. You may purchase season tickets by sending your check {payable to Akron Woman's City Club} to the Akron Woman's City Club. 732 W.
