October Book Club: On Tyranny

ontyrranyThe informed voter book club will be meeting October 11 from 6:30-8:00 PM to discuss  On Tyranny: 20 Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy D. Snyder.

A quote from the book reads:

“The Founding Fathers tried to protect us from the threat they knew, the tyranny that overcame ancient democracy. Today, our political order faces new threats, not unlike the totalitarianism of the twentieth century. We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism. Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience.”

We invite you to watch an interview with the author here.
