For the health and safety of our patrons and speakers, masks may be required for indoor in-person Houston Seminar events, and we strongly prefer registrants to be fully vaccinated. Since events are held at a variety of venues with their own policies and protocols, there may be other requirements for some courses. We make every effort to inform guests in a timely manner if there are additional health and safety guidelines they will be asked to follow. Our trips and study tours, particularly those that include shared transportation or plane flights, may also require guidelines beyond those for in-person courses, which will be determined in conjunction with venues, vendors, and local guidelines. We will make every effort to announce these guidelines as far in advance as possible. Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to navigate the world of COVID-19 while bringing enriching experiences to our audiences.
Stephen Klineberg and the Prophetic City
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 6:30 – 8:00 P.M.
BRAZOS BOOKSTORE, 2421 BISSONNET, 77005. LIMITED ENROLLMENT.
In this evening discussion, Stephen Klineberg will give us the benefit of his accumulated wisdom and perspective about Houston before he moves away from the city he has studied with insight and acuity for the past 40 years.
In the annual “Kinder Houston Area Survey”, conducted since 1982, Professor Klineberg has tracked the shifts in economic outlooks, demographic patterns, life experiences, attitudes, and beliefs among successive representative samples of Harris County residents. His 2020 book Prophetic City: Houston on the Cusp of a Changing America goes even deeper, fleshing out the annual survey numbers with anecdotes about the people who have made Houston what it is today and the motivations behind the numbers. Professor Klineberg’s stories are riveting, and his insights provide a key to a real understanding of Houston. He helps us to interpret the past, appreciate the present, and anticipate the future, not only for Houston but for the rest of the country as well.
