Since 2002, Guilford College in Greensboro, NC, has presented the Bryan Series, an amazing speaker program featuring well known figures in the arts, humanities and public affairs. Past speakers have included Nobel Prize laureates, former U.S. Secretaries and State, winners of MacArthur Fellowships and Academy, Tony, Grammy and Emmy Awards.
Speakers in the 2013 Series will be Robert Gates on Oct. 29, 2013; Robert Ballard on Nov. 19, 2013; Itzhak Perlman on Feb. 13, 2014; Elizabeth Alexander on March 4, 2014; and Lara Logan and Steve Kroft on April 8, 2014. Events start at 7:30 p.m. and last approximately 80 minutes.
The Bryan Series events are presented in the 2,400-seat War Memorial Auditorium, 1921 West Lee Street, which is part of the Greensboro Coliseum Complex.
The War Memorial is a short 2.2 mile drive from the Troy-Bumpas Inn Bed and Breakfast, making the inn a great location for out-of-town guests to stay when attending the series. We have been honored to have several subscription holders stay at the inn during past seasons. Conversations at the breakfast table the morning after each event are always interesting as guests share and discuss what they heard!
The Bryan Series has frequently sold out quickly during the subscription ticket sale, which is currently underway. Subscriptions can be purchased online at www.bryanseries.guilford.edu or by calling 336-316-2852 to request a ticket order form. Cost of the 2013-14 subscription series is $195 each.
