Lane Lecture Series

The Lane Lecture Series is a major presence in the cultural life of Stanford University. Through their generosity, Jean and Bill Lane have made it possible for the most distinguished and exciting of contemporary writers to visit Stanford.

Established in 1981, this series honors the enduring power and importance of our literature by bringing the best of writers together with their readers, offering both campus and community a rare and exhilarating experience of their work. The 2022-23 writers include Gilbert King, Mary Ruefle, and Hilton Als.
