The Cape Ann Forum seeks to engage the public in conversations about the rapidly changing social and political environment in which we live and what we can do to make it a better, safer place. We present free, public forums that bring experience and perspectives not often represented in the mainstream media and that give voice to citizens whose concerns, hopes and fears are too often lost or ignored.

Please join us at Gloucester City Hall with veteran reporter and commentator Christopher Lydon—“the last newspaper guy and the first podcaster.” He will reflect on what we know, how we know it and what we do with it in a world that seems to shift under our feet as we make our way through it. Lydon covered politics for the Boston Globe and the New York Times in the 1970s. He hosted the Ten O’Clock news on WGBH-TV in the 1980s and The Connection on WBUR-FM in the 1990s.  read more »
