The year 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of The Nation, the oldest weekly magazine in the country. From groundbreaking investigative journalism, to cutting-edge cultural commentary, to unmatched political analysis, The Nation has been at the forefront of American politics and culture since its inception by a young group of abolitionists months after the assassination of President Lincoln.

Hear some of our country’s most inspiring truth-tellers channeling the past, limning the present and looking toward the future: Walter Mosley, Naomi Klein, Ursula Le Guin, Richard Kim, Katrina vanden Heuvel, Zoe Carpenter, Dave Zirin and John Nichols. Don’t miss this historic opportunity to experience the magazine that Harry Belafonte says “has brought to the table of human need a menu of truth.”
