All Common Ground Speaker Series events are free of charge to parents of member schools. Since The Harker School is a member school, parents need only come to the event and identify themselves as Harker parents. No RSVP is necessary. Non-member guests are welcome to attend for $20 at the door. Light refreshments are available 30 minutes prior to each event. Speakers’ books, if applicable, are available for purchase in cooperation with Books Inc.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
