The Center for American Progress and the Progressive Book Club are pleased to launch, "Moving Forward: Foundations of a New Progressive Era," a new authors series that will bring together leading writers and policy experts in a unique in-person and online discussion forum for Americans to learn, connect, and debate progressive ideas.
The series will examine a range of issues emerging from the intersection of history, philosophy, political theory and public policy. Each event will feature a different topic, author, and moderator with live and online audiences ready to debate and discuss the issues raised. Additional online content over time will include author interviews, videos, webinars and links to supporting content and activism resources hosted by CAP, PBC and other partner organizations.
The first event in the series will feature historian Kevin Mattson, author of "What the Heck Are You Up To, Mr. President?" Jimmy Carter, America’s "Malaise" And the Speech That Should Have Changed the Country.
