LLI: Notables

Since our beginning, over 20 years ago, LLI has offered Notables, weekly talks by experts, most often NIU faculty. We continue the series this fall. A full schedule of topics and speakers will be available later, but we can promise you topics ranging from the changing nature of work to health-care issues. Members have often found that topics that seemed of minor interest turned out to be intriguing. As always, we include plenty of time to ask questions.

Note: We have tried not to schedule study groups at the same time as Notables.
