Event description
Political analyst and Vox cofounder Ezra Klein presents his new book on the polarization of the American political system.

About this Event

In his vital new book Why We're Polarized, Ezra Klein reveals the structural and psychological forces behind America’s descent into division and dysfunction. Neither a polemic nor a lament, Klein offers a clear framework for understanding the politicization of everyday culture that will change how you look at politics, and perhaps at yourself. Klein launches his book in conversation with Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of Between the World and Me and We Were Eight Years in Power.

All tickets include a copy of Why We're Polarized. Ezra Klein will sign books following the presentation.
