Past Events

Since our founding in 2005, FOLCS has hosted an impressive array of guests on our stage. We break down the big ideas of the day with artists, actors, directors, writers, government leaders, and public intellectuals. Even a former United States President and sitting Justices on the Supreme Court have joined us!

Events are always in the works.
