Notable figures from political, artistic, and theatrical spectrums engage with Hudson Union Society members through enlightening weekly discussions, film premieres, and galas around Manhattan. In May, Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez will gather with a limited group to intimately converse about the history of their Hollywood entrenched family. Attendees will receive their hardcover book, which combines their two viewpoints into a compendium of anecdotes. Through the society’s other featured events, members probe the creative processes of Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. The Hudson Union Society, a collective with a reputation for cultivating open discussion, encourages members of all mindsets and ideals to share their viewpoints with presenters, be they actress Denise Richards or journalist Tom Brokaw. When not fostering mental exchanges between individuals, the society hosts a number of other events, including red-carpet premieres, famous mixers, and adlibbed rounds of Hollywood Squares. Basic membership bestows their bearers with invitations to Hudson Union Society’s free and reduced-rate events. When not engaging with prominent entertainment and political figures, members can get to know their ilk in society-hosted private parties.
Hudson Union Society
It's hard to think of what Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly have in common. Or Al Gore and Jenny McCarthy. Throw in Jessica Alba, James Franco, Conan O'Brien, and Colin Powel, and it seems like the list of similarities comes down to their number of limbs. But all of these political and entertainment luminaries have offered their own insights to the public through Hudson Union Society's long-running lecture series. Modeled on the Oxford Union debate society, the Hudson Union Society claims no political or sociological bias and gives equal time to leaders from across the spectrum.
