The Lenox Library announces its sixth season of lectures by notable commentators in the arts, science, politics, and the humanities. The lectures are held one Sunday per month from September to April, at 4 p.m. in the library’s historic Sedgwick Reading Room.

The first lecture, on Sept. 23, titled "Is America Divided? The 2012 Election," will be given by Michael Hannahan, director of the Civic Initiative at the Donahue Institute, University of Massachusetts.

The lecture is free, thanks to the generosity of the speakers, though donations are always welcome to support the library’s many services and programs.
