WoodsTalk: Live invites dynamic and engaging speakers and panelists who take us on explorations of the power and possibilities of the arts and humanities, inspire us to think critically, and provoke us to become engaged members of our communities. Join these live conversations where music, the ‘60s, and the value of arts and humanities will be discussed in ways that awaken the lessons of the past to their relevancy today.

WoodsTalk:Live on Sunday, November 01, 2015 features award-winning actress Elaine Bromka in Tea for Three: Ladybird, Pat, and Betty. This theatrical one-woman show offers a fresh, behind-the-scenes look at three of our First Ladies – Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, and Betty Ford. In this time of often polarizing politics, Tea for Three humanizes the arena, allowing audiences to stand in those women's shoes.
