Draper After Dark Lectures
This series of evening talks, also generously supported in part by Sage Creek Ranch and the Nancy-Carroll Draper Foundation, usually takes place once a month (exact date depends on speaker) June through August. With our shift to virtual rather than in-person talks, plans for this series are still in flux.
