Hammer Museum

The staff at Truthdig warmly congratulates the great minds behind The Nation on the occasion of the magazine’s 150th anniversary. It’s no small feat to top the country’s must-read list for a century and a half (and going strong).

Los Angeles-area readers can celebrate the publication that’s at once a true American classic and ahead of its time at a special event on Thursday evening. Follow this link for more information about the screening of Oscar-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple’s documentary “Hot Type: 150 Years of The Nation,” followed by a Q&A with The Nation editor and publisher Katrina Vandenheuvel and writer Amy Wilentz, at the Hammer Museum. Television pioneer Norman Lear will also be on hand to kick off the program.

Here’s to another 150 years!
