Be Bold Speaker Series

The Goodnow Library Foundation launched its popular Be Bold Speaker Series in 2017. The aim of these evenings is to educate and connect members of our community through discussion and the sharing of viewpoints. Since then, the Foundation has coordinated more than a dozen events featuring 20+ speakers and bringing in approximately 500 audience members. The Foundation's goal in starting this series has always been to showcase our community.

Since 2017, the Foundation has hosted the following programs:
