Representative Jay Kaufman’s award winning public policy forum, “OPEN HOUSE”, holds its second forum of the 18th season with special guest and internationally acclaimed scholar Noam Chomsky. This special edition forum will be held Monday, October 15th, from 7:00PM-8:30PM at the historic Depot in Lexington Center (13 Depot Square in Lexington Center).

Professor Chomsky is an Institute Professor and teaches linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His theory of transformational grammar revolutionized the study of language. He is, in addition, known around the globe as one of the nation’s, indeed the world’s, great public intellectuals. His analyses, speeches and books on history, politics and economics have been widely translated and widely read. Representative Kaufman has asked Professor Chomsky to reflect on the lessons and legacy of Occupy Wall Street and on the state of politics and statecraft on Capitol Hill and Beacon Hill. Bring your questions to what is sure to be an interesting and engaging conversation with one of the great thinkers of today. Come join the very lively and informative discussion Monday October 15th, at the historic Depot in Lexington Center.

The series was also named the best television series by Massachusetts Cable Television Commission.
