Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden hosted a conversation with three dynamic leaders in the arts on March 22 in celebration of Women’s History Month at the Library of Congress. Hayden, who is the first woman to serve as Librarian of Congress, spoke with Marin Alsop, music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra; Deborah Rutter, president of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; and Molly Smith, artistic director of Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater. Hayden spoke with them about their life experiences and achievements and trends in the cultural community.

The event took place in the Members Room of the Thomas Jefferson Building and was streamed live. A recording is available on the Library’s YouTube site.

    Can we caption this for you? I’d love to make this available for the hearing impaired.

    Thank you for your request and your kind offer. A captioned version of the Women’s History Month event will be posted on the Library’s website in two to three weeks. At that time, we will post a link from the YouTube version to the captioned version.
