Edward Luce is one of the Financial Times’ most read columnists for his articles and commentaries on politics and economics – both in the US and globally. A U.K. native and Chief U.S. Columnist, Luce’s insider/outsider perspective, as well as his extensive knowledge of history, gives audiences a rare look at the presidency, the future of work, the rise of populism and the decline of the U.S. middle class.

 


Rick Stengel has spent much of his career at the murky intersection of media, policy and politics. An author and journalist, adviser to Snapchat and commentator on MSNBC, Stengel has seen and led the new model of mainstream media and the rise of disinformation resulting from social networks. Stengel not only reveals the problems of mass media, but recommends ways that countries, companies and individuals can fight back.  

 


Evan Osnos specializes in politics and foreign affairs, and has covered some of the biggest stories in America, from modern conservatism and gun control, to the Flint Water Crisis and the 2016 presidential election. Co-author of New Yorker cover story, “Trump, Putin, and the New Cold War,” Osnos examined what lay behind Russia’s interference in the 2016 election—and what lies ahead. Osnos offers lessons on reporting from some of the world’s most difficult environments on some of the most contentious topics, and how to connect the world outside with readers at home.

Standing up for social justice

Actions of hate and violence are nothing new in America. But all across the country, people are standing up to right wrongs and speak out against bigotry and injustice. Author David Grann is one such voice.

ImageHis 2017 New York Times bestseller, Killers of the Flower Moon, brings to light the story of the Osage Indians, and how one of the most sinister crimes in American history connects to Native Americans’ continuing fight to control their land and resources.

Grann’s unearthing of one of America’s forgotten chapters reminds us of the importance of truth and standing up for the rights of others. This is our America, and this is our story through thick and thin.

Best-selling author of The Lost City of Z and staff writer for The New Yorker, David Grann is known for his extensively researched yet utterly irresistible stories. Called “Extraordinary” by TIME magazine, “Killers of the Flower Moon leaves the reader with a sense of injustice not truly avenged, and it’s no fault of the author — it’s American history.”
