Thursday, December 10, 2009 5:30-7:00 PM

Forums at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library cover a diverse range of historical, political and cultural topics reflecting the legacy of President and Mrs. Kennedy's White House years. They are conducted as conversations rather than lectures.
All forums are free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended. Reservations guarantee a seat in the building, but not the main hall. Doors to the main hall open one hour before the program begins. You may make resevations for upcoming forums by using the online registration offered by this website. You may also make reservations or check if speakers' schedules have changed by calling 617.514.1643.
Kennedy Library Forums receive generous support from our lead sponsor Bank of America, and from Boston Capital, Corcoran Jennison Companies, The Lowell Institute, and The Boston Foundation.
Additional support for the Distinguished Visitor series is provided by Raytheon Company, Boston Capital, Corcoran Jennison Companies, and Nixon Peabody LLP.
