Mary Jane Malone Lecture Series

Each year, through the generosity of the Malone Family and the support of the Maecenas Society, CMHS brings a noted author to Caddo Magnet for the Mary Jane Malone Lecture Series. Begun in 1997 to memorialize the life of former student Mary Jane Malone, who had wished to become a writer, the lecture series has hosted twenty-one authors. All students attend the lecture held during the school day, and the school hosts an evening lecture that is free of charge and open to the public. Each year, students also have the opportunity to participate in a writing contest with the possibility of meeting the author in a small group session.

Robert Krulwich
21st ANNUAL MARY JANE MALONE LECTURE, OCTOBER 11, 2018, 6:30 P.M.

The 2018 Mary Jane Malone Lecture Series speaker is Robert Krulwich. Mr. Krulwich co-hosts RADIOLAB, which is produced at WNYC Studios and is nationally syndicated and available as a podcast.

The date for the lecture series is Thursday, October 11, 2018. The school lecture will be in the afternoon, with the time still to be determined. The evening lecture, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

We will have a contest for students to create and submit their own podcasts. Winners of the student podcasts will meet with Mr. Krulwich and will also have their podcasts broadcast on KDAQ. (Note: This contest will route through the science classes, as RADIOLAB has a scientific focus.)
