The 2018 edition of Calvin College’s award-winning January Series is once again at the Dogwood Center and features a solid lineup of speakers who are at the leading edge of some of the nation’s and world’s most critical and timely discussions. From Wednesday, January 3, through Tuesday, January 23, a host of nationally acclaimed speakers will continue those conversations on Calvin’s campus and viewed at remote sites like the Dogwood Center.
The January Series features one of the most influential scientific minds, a New York Times best-selling author and a former technology adviser to the White House. A few of the notable presenters in the 2018 lineup include Katherine Boo, a staff writer for The New Yorker whose work has been honored by a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant and Pulitzer Prize; Jeremy McCarter, co-author of Hamilton: The Revolution who witnessed the Broadway show’s journey from concept to cultural phenomenon; and Kevin Olusola, who is best known as the beatboxing member of the Grammy-winning vocal quintet Pentatonix.
This is a great opportunity to listen to nationally acclaimed speakers surrounding a variety of interesting topics.
