TOWN HALL Announces Speaker Change

January 4, 2023 – Sarasota

Ringling College Library Association announces that MARIA RESSA has had to cancel her appearance on January 17th, 2023, due to personal legal matters. We wish Maria Ressa and her family the best during this time.

The exciting news is that we will welcome Costa Rica’s 48th President and climate-change leader, President CARLOS ALVARADO QUESADA to the TOWN HALL Stage as our first speaker.  

Widely praised for his innovative approach to sustainable energy, his ambitious climate policies, and a highly successful response to the COVID-19 pandemic, President Alvarado joined the faculty of The Fletcher School at Tufts University in July 2022 as Professor of Practice in Diplomacy, Executive Education Keynote, and Senior Fellow in the Edward R. Murrow Center for a Digital World.

All Maria Ressa tickets for January 17th will be honored for the President Quesada lecture.

Single tickets for TOWN HALL PRESENTATIONS are on sale now.
