A late addition to Seattle Arts & Lectures’ season is former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who will discuss her new book, “Fascism: A Warning.” In the book, according to her publisher, Albright draws on her childhood in war-torn Europe and her career as a diplomat to examine how Fascism’s legacy shapes today’s world. She defines a Fascist as “someone who claims to speak for a whole nation or group, is utterly unconcerned with the rights of others, and is willing to use violence and whatever other means are necessary to achieve the goals he or she might have.”

Albright will speak in conversation with Mark Suzman of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on Tuesday, April 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the Paramount Theater. Tickets begin at $60 and include a copy of the book; student tickets (no book) are available for $10 with student ID. They go on sale Friday, Feb. 16 at
