Journalist, National Humanities Medalist, and bestselling author Krista Tippett has created a singular space for reflection and conversation in American and global public life. She founded and leads the On Being Project ( – groundbreaking media and public life initiative pursuing “deep thinking and moral imagination, social courage and joy to renew inner life, outer life, and life together.” As the creator and host of the Peabody Award-winning On Being radio show, heard on over 400 public radio stations across the US, Tippett takes up the great animating questions of human life: What does it mean to be human, how we do want to live, and who will we be to each other?

Tippett is also the author of three highly regarded books exploring spirituality and meaning, including the New York Times bestseller Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living, Einstein’s God: Conversations about Science and the Human Spirit, and Speaking of Faith: Why Religion Matters and How to Talk About It. In 2014, she received the National Humanities Medal from President Obama for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.” Tippett’s forthcoming book, Letters to a Young Citizen, is described as a field guide for discovering creative possibilities and reclaiming conversation and civility.
