Get the feeling freedom of speech isn’t quite so free these days?
Our right to speak freely colours everything from hobbling journalists and de-hiring concert pianists, to carding young black men and hoovering up our private lives in the name of national security. But what’s really the state of one of our great freedoms?
In Freedom of Speech, David Shipler offers a hugely provocative view of the state of free speech in America and beyond.
He’s the Ramsay Breakfast speaker on Thursday, June 4th.
So who is David Shipler?
A Pulitzer-Prize winner for his landmark book, Arab and Jew: Wounded Spirits in a Promised Land; co-recipient (along with Thomas Friedman) of the George Polk Award for covering the Lebanon War; former Moscow Bureau Chief for the New York Times and the paper’s Chief Diplomatic Correspondent in Washington.
So join us to learn about a whole new quiver of threats to our freedoms, and the arrows to deal with them.
