    "She will deliver lectures on November 3rd."

    OR

    "She will be delivering lectures on November 3rd."

    Both correct?

    Both correct. There is a slight difference in that the second may be considered a more 'casual' future: i.e. It just happens that this is the future situation, whereas the first may be more neutrally factual.

    However this difference would not normally be significant, so don't worry about it unless you are studying tense usage at a a moderately advanced level
