Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University


Current Affairs

Ford Hall Forum recently lost our president, Helen Rees, and with her went a vital spirit, a love for assembling people, and an ability to bring out the best in everyone she worked with.

Helen ran the Office of Cultural Affairs under Mayor Kevin White, and later founded the Helen Rees Literary Agency which she led for more than 30 years. Helen was also active in the peace movement in the '70s and politics throughout her life.

Please join us in celebrating Helen's life with her friends and colleagues who will talk about what Helen meant to them and how she brought out their best.

ACTUAL LOCATION: Main Function Room, Suffolk Law School, 120 Tremont Street
