Listen Liberal! Whatever Happened to the Party of the People?

February 9, 2017, 7:00 PM

Free

How did Donald Trump win over blue-collar voters? Why didn’t they stick with the Democrats? Thomas Frank will share his take on what led to the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Frank is a best-selling author, political analyst, historian, journalist, and columnist for Harper’s Magazine. He has written several books, most notably What’s the Matter with Kansas? (2004). Frank analyzes trends in American electoral politics and propaganda, advertising, popular culture, mainstream journalism, and economics. Frank will base his talk on his highly acclaimed 2016 book, Listen Liberal! Whatever Happened to the Party of the People?

Sponsored by the Goldfarb Center.
