Thought Gallery: Three Virtual Events To Keep You Busy This Week

Consider these recommendations for upcoming virtual talks, readings and more in and around New York City:

Democracy in a Time of Crisis
Tuesday, June 16, 5 p.m.
Federal Hall
Live stream only

Catch a timely presentation as the Conservancy at Federal Hall kicks off a new series, Debate Defends Democracy.

Shahidul Alam with Ram Rahman: The Tide Will Turn
Wednesday, June 17, 10 a.m.
Asia Society and Museum

Bangladeshi photographer Shahidul Alam was among the journalists chosen as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2018. (He was also jailed and tortured that year for speaking out against corruption.) Find him in conversation on the power of the image—as an expression of emotion, as a means of speaking truth to power, and as a way to share otherwise unknown stories. Alam will also discuss his new book, The Tide Will Turn, which presents a visual critique of autocracy in Bangladesh (free).

Collaboration with Rogers Memorial Library—Steve Israel and Richard Salomon: A Conversation via Zoom
Thursday, June 18 p.m.
