A few of the world-renowned storytellers on the 2022 docket, include: Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers, co-hosts of the popular podcasts, Pantsuit Politics and The Nuanced LifeMax Stossel, an award-winning artist named by Forbes as one of the best storytellers of the year; and Brad Montague, who is a New York Times best-selling author and creator of the hit web series “Kid President,” and an illustrator whose work is regularly featured in Joanna Gaines’ The Magnolia Journal.

The 15-day lineup of speakers will use the power of storytelling to help bridge some of the divides faced in culture today.

“I felt like as we are going through this year, we are going through a lot of stuff. We are still in a pandemic, we still have so much division among us,” said Kristi Potter, director of the January Series. “But when we listen to one another’s stories it leads to greater understanding, it produces in us empathy, and it positions us better to contribute to the flourishing of society.”

In 2022, the January Series noontime lectures will be available for viewing on one’s personal device as well as at small remote sites available across the continent. Details on how to register for these 15 presentations and where to find local remote sites are available on the January Series website.

“We value our audience and are making it as easy as possible for anyone to join from where they are, whether at home, in an office, on a couch, or at the kitchen table,” said Potter. “These conversations are so important, and we think by providing easy access to these timely and important conversations we will again reach a record number of people in 2022.”


The January Series lectures will be video streamed live in the LACA performance hall, 107 S. Harrison St., in downtown Ludington from noon to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. The lectures are free and open to the public.
