After being charged with espionage and granted asylum in Russia, Snowden currently lives in an undisclosed location. Snowden will appear via closed-circuit video link, but Scahill will be in the flesh.

The two will discuss the state of the surveillance state and what it means for whistleblowers in Trump’s America and beyond.

Tickets go on sale online Tuesday, Aug. 22 at 10 a.m. Auditorium tickets cost $35. The library expects the event to sell out. Additionally, you can watch a live broadcast of the event in a separate room at the Parkway Central branch for $15.
