Message From President

After an intense year of launching TGL, we believe that we are finally approaching the sweet spot. Our loyal attendees who have been coming since the start will pleasantly notice that we keep getting better and better. This is mostly, because of you. You take the time to fill out our surveys, which enable us to custom tailor events to your needs. As a matter of fact, our last event has received the most glowing reviews yet! We know we are on the right track for a brilliant 2019, full of even bigger and better events. We are already working on topics, speakers and special activities to carry out through the year, and are planning to expand to other cities as well. We will also start executing single-lecture events on weekdays. Stay tuned – 2019 will be a huge year for us and we look forward to sharing it with you!

From lifelong learner to lifelong learner, thank you for your support. I hope to see you all next year!

– Max G. Ansbacher, TGL President

The Great Lectures is proud to have closed out the year with three extraordinary talks themed 'Three Landmark Events that Transformed America's Political, Economic and Social Climate'.

We’ve invited two renowned historians, an activist and a counterterrorism expert to take us on an expository journey back in time, to three of America’s most pivotal events, from Lincoln’s assassination and women’s involvement in WW2, to the catastrophe of September 11.

The event was hosted at Bryant Park Event Space and like all of our signature events, included TGL's Meet the Speakers, lunch and a specially curated cocktail hour.

If you missed us in 2018, the good news is 2019 promises to be even bigger and better!

The Great Lectures (TGL) Series recognizes that learning is a lifelong endeavor. We give you the opportunity to attend LIVE one-hour talks on a range of topics, led by highly regarded professors from top universities. Our forums don’t just inform, they inspire!

Our last event on September 15th marked one year of TGL, and we celebrated with a packed house at the Times Square Event Space. Held on International Democracy Day, we discussed the fate of American democracy with four exceptional speakers.
