Krista Tippett: The Future of Hope

Thursday, March 7, 2024

Harry and Mildred Remis Auditorium (Auditorium 161)
Ticket Required

Don’t miss an evening with journalist Krista Tippett as she talks about her inspirations and joys, and reflects on the power of dialogue in American and global public life.

A National Humanities Medal recipient and best-selling author, Tippett founded and leads the On Being Project—a groundbreaking media and public life initiative pursuing “deep thinking and moral imagination, social courage, and joy to renew inner life, outer life, and life together.” As the creator and host of the Peabody Award–winning On Being podcast (formerly broadcast on more than 400 public radio stations over 20 years), Tippett tackles the great animating questions of human life: What does it mean to be human, how we do want to live, and who will we be to each other?
