The award-winning journalist and author Masha Gessen delivers this year's annual Robert B. Silvers lecture, “The Stories of a Life.” Born in Moscow, Gessen immigrated to the U.S. with her family in 1981, at the age of 14. She returned to Moscow as a correspondent ten years later and stayed, becoming a Russian-language journalist in addition to her work for American magazines. She re-immigrated to the United States in 2013, after her family was targeted by Putin’s anti-gay campaign. She is a contributing opinion writer to The New York Times and a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books.

The Robert B. Silvers Lecture is an annual series created by Max Palevsky in recognition of the work of Robert B. Silvers, a co-founding editor of The New York Review of Books, who died earlier this year.
