Garry Kasparov: Liberty, It’s Your Move
All Library locations will be closed on Sunday, April 20, in observance of the Easter holiday.
Due to heavy interest in this event, seating in the Truman Forum auditorium is near capacity. Parties that RSVP after 2 p.m., Wednesday, December 1, 2010, may be standing-room-only.
Garry Kasparov, considered by many to be the greatest chess player in history, discusses his efforts to promote democracy and liberty in Russia and around the world.
A leader of the pro-democracy opposition in his native Russia, Kasparov campaigned unsuccessfully for the presidency in 2008. He is a popular speaker for business groups around the world on topics of strategy, innovation, and leadership. He is the author of How Life Imitates Chess, which has been published in more than a dozen languages.
Kasparov’s presentation is co-sponsored by the Show-Me Institute and Sinquefield Charitable Foundation.
