About the Speaker Series

Originally founded as the Library Book Club in 2000 by the University Libraries, we changed our name once in 2005 to Library Speaker Series. With the start of the 2010 academic year, we have changed names once more to Friends of the Loyola Libraries Speaker Series. Our aim is to involve Friends of the Library, current Loyolans, alumni, and other Chicagoans in stimulating conversations about recently published works. Speakers include Loyola faculty and alumni, prominent Chicago authors, and other special guests.


The 2012-2013 presentations included the history of London and a look at growing up in China in the 1970s.


The Library Speaker Series would like to showcase the talents of our fellow Loyolans. If you would like to be considered for a future talk, please let us know contact Svetlana Surkevicius at esurkevicius@luc.edu or (773) 508-2641.
