New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman will join host Marvin Kalb Monday, Feb. 10, to talk about the intersection of national security and personal freedom. With the fallout from Edward Snowden’s massive leaks about NSA surveillance reverberating around the world, the appearance of the three-time Pulitzer Prize winner comes at a critical moment.

Kalb and Friedman will discuss “not just freedom of the press but all of our freedoms at a time when we must consider the dangers of global terrorism threatening our own cherished freedom,” Kalb said in announcing the show.

The show will begin at 8 p.m. in the National Press Club Ballroom, but the audience should be seated a few minutes earlier. Although admission is free, seats are limited. Club members should reserve by calling the Club’s main number, 202-662-7500.
