In 1804, New York City was visited by an Invisible Lady. Who was she? Find out March 19th, when Jill Lepore presents her first lecture: Hidden: The History of Secrecy. Part I: Mystery. Lepore will discuss the strange history of the relationship between the unseen and the unknown. 
And of course, you should certainly RSVP for the second lecture where Lepore considers a paradox of contemporary culture in which the only thing more cherished than privacy is publicity.

Hell yes, Jill Lepore.
