The creators of the award-winning TV series “Homeland,” Hall of Famer Joe Torre and CIA Director John Brennan headline public programs this fall at the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

The museum’s ongoing public programs cover an array of topics, including global security, foreign policy and the effect 9/11 continues to have on pop culture. The complete fall lineup includes slam poetry exploring 9/11 themes through American Sign Language and a program on how artists responded to the terror strikes. The latter is connected to the Sept. 12 opening of the special exhibition titled “Rendering the Unthinkable: Artists Respond to 9/11.”

The season begins Sept. 21 with “Joe Torre: Baseball after 9/11.” Torre, Major League Baseball’s chief baseball officer and Hall of Famer, will talk about getting the New York Yankees back on the field after 9/11 and the role baseball played in helping America recover.

Programs are free to the public, but registration is required. Learn more and register here.

Last season, programs at the museum included talks with former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and John Miller, NYPD deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism, who in 1998 for ABC News interviewed Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan.
