A roundtable debate on the effect of the last ten years on society, featuring Kron, The New Yorker's Hendrik Hertzberg and The New York Times' Sam Tanenhaus, and moderated by Jeremy McCarter, will then take place.
Members of the The Civilians will perform songs about America written by Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson's Michael Friedman to conclude the evening, which will be hosted by The Public's artistic director, Oskar Eustis.
