Lunch at the Library
The American Philosophical Society hosts a spring and fall series of informal lunch presentations on new research and emerging topics by and for APS staff, research fellows, and other scholars. From the U.S. Constitution to 18th-century French mathematicians, the topics are as varied as the research interests and collections at the APS.
Lunch and the program are from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in Benjamin Franklin Hall (427 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia).
APS Lunch at the Library invitations are available to Friends of the APS who contribute at the Supporting Circle and beyond ($500+). Registration is required. RSVP to Adrianna Link at email@example.com.
