About Kepler’s Arts & Lectures
Kepler’s Arts & Lectures is a new non-profit public forum that offers lectures, panel discussions, on-stage interviews, and educational workshops covering the arts, culture, technology and current affairs to foster intellectual discourse and civic engagement. Kepler’s Arts & Lectures is committed to hosting noteworthy writers and thinkers so people can interact with these leading minds in a face-to-face setting.
Kepler’s Arts & Lectures was started in Fall 2012 as part of a reorganization of Kepler’s Books, the legendary literary institution and bookstore based in Menlo Park, CA. Kepler's already had an award-winning events program, having hosted over 200 literary and cultural events annually. Recent notable speakers have included Sonia Sotomayor, Salman Rushdie, TC Boyle, Michael Chabon, John Green, Louise Penny, Tony LaRussa, Rick Riordan, Lemony Snicket and Lauren Oliver. With Kepler’s Arts & Lectures we now are expanding this program in a major way to address cultural and educational needs in the region.
