I was looking forward to Mr. Whitehead's lecture, but I could only hear about 2/3 of it. This was partly because of the echo and partly because I don't think he was close enough to the microphone. Disappointing.

This was excellent. Ms Gilliam's story was fascinating. I really enjoyed the talk and my visit to Enoch Pratt Library. I've never been before, and I didn't realize it was so beautiful!
