Chautauqua, according to the late, great Teddy Roosevelt, is "the most American thing in America." It’s also the country’s oldest ideas festival. Since its founding in 1874, Chautauqua has attracted the
likes of Amelia Earhart, FDR and Susan B. Anthony. The rich tradition continues in 2011. Speakers include New York Times' contributor Stanley Fish, groundbreaking religious commentator Karen Armstrong,
leading foreign policy analyst Robin Wright, noted historian Gordon Wood and several others. Take advantage of this exclusive offer from FORA.tv and the Chautauqua Institution, and join the discussion as these thought leaders address the most pressing issues facing America and the world.

The Chautauqua Institution was founded on the belief that everyone has a right to be all that he can be -- to know all that he can know. The experiences come in many forms. A dramatic lakeside setting and the beauty of its National Historic Landmark architecture make the Chautauqua Institution a thriving community where visitors come to find intellectual and spiritual growth and renewal.
