Norwich will welcome former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright for “An Evening with Madeleine Albright,’’ on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 7 p.m. in Plumley Armory. This lecture is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
Albright speaks with humor, insight and eloquence about her life and career as a young refugee who rose to become for a time the world’s most powerful woman. Albright sketches a vivid portrait of her years as Secretary of State and offers candid descriptions of the leaders she encountered in Washington and overseas. She also discusses America’s global role and the many challenges facing President Obama and other world leaders today. While in office, Albright was renowned for her courage in “telling it like it is.” Now, as a best-selling author and successful businessperson, she offers a unique and always lively account of service at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
