Thomas Frank: Listen, Liberal

Christ Church Cathedral

Left Bank Books welcomes bestselling author of What's the Matter with Kansas Thomas Frank, who will sign and discuss his most recent book, Listen, Liberal: Or, What Ever Happened to the Party of the People?

Listen, Liberal is a scathing look at the failures of liberal politics, a book that helps explain the shocking outcome of the 2016 presidential election. It is a widespread belief among liberals that if only Democrats can continue to dominate national elections, if only those awful Republicans are beaten into submission, the country will be on the right course. But this is to fundamentally misunderstand the modern Democratic Party. Drawing on years of research and first-hand reporting, Frank points out that the Democrats have done little to advance traditional liberal goals: expanding opportunity, fighting for social justice, and ensuring that workers get a fair deal.

"An astute dissection of contemporary Democratic politics that demonstrates, cogently and at times acidly, how the party lost the allegiance of blue-collar Americans." —Publishers Weekly

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Listen, Liberal from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
