Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright may be the most widely admired diplomat of our age; a tireless public servant whose new memoir Hell and Other Destinations is not only a record of living through history – but making it. In 2001, when Madeleine Albright was leaving office as America’s first female Secretary of State, interviewers asked her how she wished to be remembered. “I don’t want to be remembered,” she answered. “I am still here and have much more I intend to do. As difficult as it might seem, I want every stage of my life to be more exciting than the last.” In this live streamed conversation with Hannah MacInnes, we see this remarkable figure at her bluntest, funniest, most intimate, and most serious. This is an unmissable chance to hear from one of the world’s most admired and respected public figures.
