Live from the NYPL

While I’m on the subject of slightly egghead-ish events (aka Readings and Talks), here’s what the initial 2012 schedule looks like for LIVE from the NYPL. Tickets for members go on sale, Jan 6, non-members can purchase tickets on Jan 9. If you like, you can become a friend of the NYPL over here.

WERNER HERZOG: Death Row & Other Journeys, in conversation with Paul Holdengräber
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2012, 7 P.M.
“I am not an advocate of the death penalty. I do not even have an argument; I only have a story, the history of the barbarism of Nazi Germany. The argument that innocent men and women have been executed is, in my opinion, only a secondary one. A State should not be allowed-under any circumstance-to execute anyone for any reason. End of story.”–Werner Herzog

“Where did we come from? What are we? Where are we going? Conceived in ultimate simplicity by Paul Gaugin on the canvas of his Tahitian masterpiece, these are in fact the central problems of religion and philosophy. Will we ever be able to solve them? Sometimes it seems not. Yet perhaps we can.”–E. O. Wilson
