Held on the first Wednesday of every month, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum’s High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics during a lunchtime lecture (because your brain needs food, too).

This month’s discussion will center around Brantley Hightower, architect and author of “The Courthouses of Central Texas,” for a look at the ingenuity involved in designing these ubiquitous historic landmarks.

Details: Noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday. Free. 1800 Congress Ave. 512-936-4696,
