The MOONLIGHTER PRESENTS speaker series encourages the public presentation of secret hobbies, passions, thoughts, opinions, and research. Our speakers address topics that may fall outside of their professional practices or make extensive amateur studies of subjects for which they lack "official" qualification, credentials, and training.
