Covid Guidelines for Physical Events

We continue to follow government guidelines regarding Covid-19 safety at the Festival. We encourage masks for indoor events. Please be aware that select indoor programs might require masks and we ask for your cooperation in these cases.


Pandemic Times 

How will life in the pandemic define society or change it? Mark Honigsbaum (The Pandemic Century: 100 Years of Panic, Hysteria and Hubris), Paolo Giordano (How Contagion Works: Science, Awareness and Community in Times of Global Crisis), and Sonia Shah (Pandemic: Tracking Contagions from Cholera to Ebola and Beyond) discuss personal and political responses to the pandemic we are living through and contemplate the future. Is there a new normal? Moderated by Brian Tate, president of Tate Strategy.
