The Great Lectures Celebrates 1 Year With The Most Epic Event Yet.

TGL has a lot to celebrate. In just one short year, The Great Lectures' events have continued to grow bigger and better, with a roster of increasingly impressive lecturers, from Harvard and Columbia professors to TED speakers. From a modest beginning to sold out tickets and rave reviews, CEO Max Ansbacher's goal "to create a community of lifelong learners" has quickly come to fruition.

On September 15th, The Great Lectures will welcome four outstanding speakers: Holy Cross College's Professor Edward T. O'Donnell to discuss The American Revolution as the first chapter of America's Democracy, Emory University's Professor Patrick Allitt to dissect Law & Religion: The Founding Fathers' Intention and where we are today, Columbia University's Professor Adam Tooze to answer the critical question, Can Democracy Disintegrate? analyzing Germany's rise of Hitler with current events, and President and CEO of the Center for American Progress, Neera Tanden to explore the Future of Democracy in America.
