Speech, the Internet, and Democracy featuring Suzanne Nossel

In the aftermath of the January 6 attack on the Capitol, the College is presenting a series of discussions with leading experts on the current state and future prospects for American democracy.
Suzanne Nossel is the chief executive officer at PEN America. She is a leading voice on issues of free expression and maintaining democratic debate that is open, freewheeling but at the same time respectful of the rich diversity of backgrounds and opinions in a changing country. She is the author of Dare to Speak: Defending Free Speech for All, called “brave, wise, succinct” and “a must-read...for anyone who talks” by Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid’s Tale.
