All-Day Event
Saturday, February 29, 2020 10 AM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Timed to celebrate the HISTORY’s 25th Anniversary, this day-long experience, with the first session beginning at 10 am and the second session at 2 pm, will feature leaders, thinkers, historians and performances, culminating with an exclusive conversation between two former Presidents led by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. This inaugural HISTORYTalks event provides a first-hand view of history-in-the-making with reflections on the past as well as informed insights for our future.
