THIS EVENT CAN BE WATCHED ON LINE AT THIS LINK.
Tonight at Washington’s National Cathedral, I will be helping to introduce a major event — attended by more than 1,200 people — titled “America and the World: Picking Up the Pieces.”
The program will start at 7 pm and conclude at 9 pm EST. This is the inaugural event of a newly endowed “Nancy and Paul Ignatius Program” established by Washington Post national security columnist David Ignatius and his siblings and family friends.
The event will stream live on the National Cathedral website (and perhaps at TWN — but not sure yet). A video file will also be available for later viewing.
This event will start with opening comments from Washington National Cathedral Dean SAM LLOYD and New America Foundation/American Strategy Program Director STEVE CLEMONS.
Then, DAVID IGNATIUS, ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI, and BRENT SCOWCROFT will engage in a discussion about US foreign policy building on their recently released book, America and the World: Conversations on the Future of American Foreign Policy.
Then, HAILI CAO of Caijing Magazine in China, Bishop of Batswana TREVOR MWAMBA, Carnegie Endowment Iran expert Karim Sadjadpour, and New York Times foreign affairs columnist THOMAS FRIEDMAN will offer comments.
I think that the book is must read — and look forward to getting the video of this interesting event to the readers here at TWN
