Since 2001, the Women of Wisdom Society has joined together to share in the pursuit of knowledge and the joy of learning. Each fall, distinguished educators, innovators and professionals visit Loyola Academy to present thought-provoking lectures followed by lively discussions that often continue through lunch.
If you're already a WOW subscriber, we're thrilled to welcome you back for our 16th season. If you've never experienced our acclaimed lecture and lunch series, why not start a new autumn tradition that will expand your social circle, broaden your horizons and change the way you think about the world? Isn't it time you joined the conversation?
The 2017 lecture series begins on September 26 and continues every other week through November 7. A special private bus tour of famous Chicago parks led by docents from the Chicago Architecture Foundation is available on September 19 for those subscribers that purchase the four lecture series.
Set aside a few Tuesday mornings to be enlightened and entertained at the Women of Wisdom Lecture Series!
