A Night of Philosophy and Ideas at the Brooklyn Public Library with the SNF’s support
26 January 2018

The Brooklyn Public Library and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the US have announced “A Night of Philosophy and Ideas”, a free 12-hour event bringing philosophers, musicians, artists and authors from around the world together with the Brooklyn and Greater New York community through a series of conversations and performances.

Highlights of the all-night marathon include a keynote address by George Yancy, author of “Dear White America” and Emory University professor of philosophy, a screening of Claude Lanzmann’s nine-hour documentary film, Shoah, a salon hosted by National Sawdust, an artist-led nonprofit music organization, and much more.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) is one of the lead supporters of the event, which had more than 7,500 attendees last year. The SNF supports a number of Brooklyn Public Library’s programs within the Arts & Culture, Youth Family Services and Outreach Services Departments.

The event will take place from 7:00 pm to 7:00 am on January 27-28, 2018 at the historic Central Library at Grand Army Plaza. More information, including a full program, can be found here.
