The Oregon coast fairly teems with interesting and vibrant people - some are here for only a week or a few months, and some live here. Some, if we're lucky, share their experiences via the spoken word, through lectures. Listening to these artists, writers, historians, teachers - in short, anyone who has something to share about their cultural experiences - enriches our lives.

Individual lectures are posted as events and can be found in the event calendar. Details on the lecturer, subject, venue and contact information can be found by viewing the individual events.
