Held annually at the College since 1877, February Meetings have offered Maryville College and local community an opportunity to come together to consider questions of faith and responsible living in the world. In years past, guest speakers and special music have been highlights of the condensed lecture series, which is open to all members of the College community, people in the area, and visitors, including the College’s Board of Church Visitors. Please note: due to inclement weather in the past, February Meetings will be take place in April.
February Meetings will be held on Monday, April 24th 2017.
We're proud to announce that beloved author Katherine Paterson will be joining us for Terabithia and Beyond, which will include a February Meetings presentation on her latest book Stories of My Life. Katherine Paterson will present in the Harold and Jean Lambert Recital Hall in the Clayton Center for the Arts at 7pm on Monday, April 24th!
