About this event

Anand Giridharadas presents The Persuaders

In conversation with Jodi Kantor

Tickets: $32 (includes signed book)

The lifeblood of any free society is persuasion: changing other people’s minds in order to change things. But America is suffering a crisis of faith in persuasion that is putting its democracy and the planet itself at risk. With his new book, The Persuaders, former New York Times columnist and foreign correspondent Anand Giridharadas offers an insider account of activists, politicians, educators, and everyday citizens working to change minds, bridge divisions, and fight for democracy—from disinformation fighters to a leader of Black Lives Matter to Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and more. Giridharadas will be joined at The Bell House by author and New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor for a reading and discussion of democracy, persuasion, and a way towards healing a fracturing country.


Each book bundle ticket includes a signed copy of The Persuaders, to be picked up at the event.
