Event description
Hear author, former Boston Globe editor, and “Spotlight” team member Ben Bradlee, Jr. and Harvard's own Charlie Sennott!

About this Event

Join us to hear acclaimed journalist and former Boston Globe reporter and editor Ben Bradlee, Jr. discuss his book, The Forgotten: How the People of One Pennsylvania County Elected Donald Trump and Changed America .

Shortly after the 2016 election, Bradlee began interviewing voters in Luzerne County, where Donald Trump won 58 percent of the vote to help Pennsylvania become one of the states that unexpectedly swung the election. By July 2018, Bradlee had spoken with nearly 100 voters, most of whom felt that government and the Democratic Party had forgotten them. Praised by political commentators, academics and journalists alike, Bradlee's "meticulous reporting" illuminates a riveting portrait of today's American electorate and informs our political consciousness at a pivotal time in United States history.

Moderated by Harvard's own Charlie Sennott, veteran journalist and foreign correspondent.

A book signing with books from Acton's Silver Unicorn Bookstore and a reception with libations and light bites will follow the program. (Please note that the event ticket price does not include the cost of the book.)
