February Four Archive

Andalusia has been hosting a February lecture series for the past decade. In 2015 we continued that tradition with a slight shift in name – the Annual February Four – to indicate the series is more than lectures, and includes author’s readings, films, and other media. To provide content to Andalusia’s world-wide audience, we podcast the February Four via Andalusia’s Wise Pod. The 2016 series, including guests Judson Mitcham, Monica Miller, and Tim Youd, is now accessible on iTunes.
