The My Missouri Lecture Series invites prominent Missourians from all walks of life to reflect on what being a Missourian has meant to them as they speak about how the state’s history, people, and culture have shaped their experiences. All lectures in the series are free and open to the public. The inaugural My Missouri Lecture will be presented by Claire McCaskill, former Democratic US Senator from Missouri. McCaskill will speak at 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 2, at the State Historical Society’s Annual Meeting in the Center for Missouri Studies in Columbia. Former Republican US Senator John Danforth will speak in 2020 in St. Louis at a time and place to be determined. Future speakers will be announced as information becomes available.
