Events

The Athenaeum of Philadelphia Speaker Series presents innovative and inspiring authors, architects and scholars from the humanities and sciences. We host book clubs, conversation groups and workshops online and onsite. Exhibits, concerts, First Fridays and behind-the-scenes trips to local museums and historical sites bring our community together through conversation and learning.
