Roundtable Header 2.jpg

The John C. Bogle Adirondack Roundtable Series is an arts and humanities program modeled on Boston’s Copley Roundtable, a discussion group of civic leaders that would invite speakers to present at informal mid-week luncheons. Our Roundtables are breakfast presentations, and each summer we bring three to four world-class presenters to speak on topics of national and international importance in the fields of politics and foreign policy, economics and finance, philosophy and philanthropy, and the visual and performing arts. John C. Bogle (1929-2019) was our Chair Emeritus of The Adirondack Roundtable.



We are excited to announce our partnership with the Lake Placid Center for the Arts to present the
2023 John C. Bogle Roundtable Series.

Each Roundtable will be held at

Lake Placid Center for the Arts Theater *NEW Location
17 Algonquin Drive, Lake Placid 

Breakfast will be provided by Saranac Sourdough

Please note the location has changed from LPCA Annex to the Theater
