This special update is all about Town Hall's renovation and reopening. Host Jini Palmer goes on an exclusive tour of the building with Town Hall's executive director, Wier Harman. They discuss the construction delays (Town Hall will open its doors as soon as possible), what's in store, and what you can do to help. Wier talks about compelling Town Hall events taking place in venues throughout the city this spring. He chats about Town Hall's Take the Stage campaign, where you can purchase a plank with your name on it and be a permanent part of Town Hall's Great Hall stage. Wier also talks with Jini about Town Hall's grand re-opening festival taking place this September. Join Town Hall during this exciting moment!
