Broward College Ft. Lauderdale Speaker Series

Performing at Broward Center for the Performing Arts / Au-Rene Theater (Oct 23 - May 21)


OCT 23 thru MAY 21

The Fort Lauderdale Speakers Series is a series of seven (7) live lectures, on seven evenings from October 2013 through April 2014. Lectures are held at the Au-Rene Theatre in Fort Lauderdale’s Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

Our highly distinguished speakers share with the audience their unique experiences, insights, points of view and behind the scenes stories on some of the most current topics of the day. And audience members are given the opportunity to submit questions to be answered during the spirited question and answer session that follows each lecture. All lectures begin at 8PM, with lobby doors opening at 7PM. You can enjoy “A Lite Bite” before the lecture in our Horvitz Lobby. The Broward Center also provides assistive listening devices, free of charge.
