Spoken Word


Start Smart, Get Smarter!

We’re thrilled to unveil a new programming dimension at the Morris Museum. “SmartTalks” is a series of captivating speakers–scholars and authors who are experts in their field–to broaden our horizons and challenge conventional wisdom.  The full series launches in Spring 2019, with weekly talks on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m.

As a “sneak preview,” we held two SmartTalks this fall!  The first talk, Do Animals have Rights? with Professor Ian Drake of Montclair State University, was held on September 13, 2018.  The second talk, What is Jazz and Why Does It Matter? with Doctoral candidate and Jazz Historian, Michael Conklin was held on October 11, 2018.

Seating is General Admission.

Stay tuned for more SmartTalks coming this spring!
