“The appeal of LIFE for us is the prospect of hearing interesting, novel, mind-broadening, even sometimes mind-baffling lectures. Amazingly, some of the best are ones with non-descriptive titles that turn out to be very engaging–like having a surprise Christmas present on Tuesday. The ribbon around the present is the friendships made and renewed each week.”
