VIRTUAL EVENT—Dare to Speak: Defending Free Speech for All
October 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Dare to Speak: Defending Free Speech for All
Suzanne Nossel, CEO of PEN America, the writers’ human rights organization devoted to the celebration and defense of free expression worldwide, will discuss her new book Dare to Speak: Defending Free Speech for All. In an era in which free speech is often invoked as a principle but rarely understood, learning to maneuver the fast-changing, treacherous landscape of public discourse has never been more urgent. Nossel offers a vital, necessary guide to maintaining democratic debate that is open but respectful of the rich diversity of backgrounds and opinions in a changing country. Nossel will be joined in conversation by Emory historian Joe Crespino.
This virtual lecture is supported in part by Georgia Humanities, as part of Georgia Humanities’ Civic Engagement Track at the virtual Decatur Book Festival.
