About This Event
Join us for a fascinating discussion about how progressives can develop and articulate a long-term vision of democratic, economic, and ecological renewal with authors Bill Ivey and Joe Romm. Ivey's new book, Handmaking America, examines how right-wing ideology and postindustrial capitalism have undermined work, government, and our very way of life, while advancing a practical vision for a good society that can use the capacity of government to recover the essential American idea. Romm's book, Language Intelligence, examines how the best communicators, from Jesus to Abraham Lincoln, have employed a few simple rules to educate, persuade, and lead people toward a better vision of society and human life.
Light food available starting at 6 p.m. Program runs from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Books will be available for sale.
