Today, the U.S. and other democracies are under attack, facing serious threats to our values, liberties, and institutions that many of us never saw coming. How can concerned citizens stop these anti-democratic forces if we don’t understand what they are? Join experienced activist poet Mimi Plevin-Foust to read, discuss and strategize from three powerful, well-researched non-fiction books that will arm us with the knowledge and insight we need to fight back. Books are available from the library or can be purchased.

Week One: House of Putin, House of Trump: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia by Craig Unger (2018)
Week Two: On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Snyder (2017)
Week Three: Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America by Nancy MacLean (2017)
