The Will to See, An Evening with Bernard-Henri Lévy

With Bernard-Henri Lévy

Albertine Books, New York • United States

Organiser's website

Over the past 50 years internationally acclaimed author, philosopher and activist Bernard-Henri Lévy has reported extensively on human rights abuses around the world. The Will to See: Dispatches from a World of Misery and Hope is the culmination of Lévy’s reporting trips through eight international hotspots — Nigeria; Syrian and Iraqi Kurdistan; Ukraine; Somalia; Bangladesh; Lesbos, Greece; Libya; and Afghanistan—that have escaped global attention or active response. Part manifesto, part missives from the field, The Will to See is a stirring rebuke to indifference and an exhortation to level our gaze at those most hidden from us.

On Thursday, November 4th, at 6:30pm, join Bernard-Henri Lévy as he discuss his latest book, The Will to See: Dispatches from a World of Misery and Hope (Yale University Press).

The conversation will be held in English. This event is free. Please note that RSVPs are required as entrees are limited. Please click here to receive your ticket. Vaccination status will be checked upon entry.
