Better Living Through Microdosing: Ayelet Waldman
Fine Arts Building Studebaker Theater, Chicago IL
Chicago Humanities Festival
Novelist Ayelet Waldman despaired managing her mood disorder—and her husband and children were suffering too. Then she tried something new: 10 micrograms of LSD. For a month, she joined the ranks of an underground but increasingly vocal group using therapeutic microdoses of LSD. In A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life, Waldman draws on her experience as a federal public defender to tell a story that ranges from the war on drugs to harm reduction to psychedelics research.

The New World Order
Venue SIX10, Chicago IL
Chicago Humanities Festival
Global politics and its power bases are in transition. President Donald Trump promises a dramatic change in U.S. foreign policy—less intervention around the world, more focus on America’s national interests. This isn’t a new idea, but given today’s shifting relations with Russia and China, it is one that may fundamentally remake the existing world order. Harvard University professor and Foreign Policy columnist Stephen Walt has taken issue with the foreign policy visions of both the 44th and 45th Presidents. He will be joined by Steve Edwards of the Institute of Politics for a pointed conversation about the future of global relations.
