Engage with the brightest at The New York Public Library’s premier cultural series! LIVE from the NYPL offers conversations with notable writers, artists, and thought leaders.

In 2006, The New York Public Library wanted to document and distribute their live conversations with the world’s greatest minds. Featuring Norman Mailer, John Updike, Samantha Power, Salman Rushdie, Anthony Bourdain, and others, RUMUR helped launch the venerable series. With over 400 episodes, it has become a premiere stop for the leading thinkers.
