Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump with Dave Neiwert
Join Eagle Harbor Book Company in welcoming Dave Neiwart on Thursday June 13th at 6:30PM for an evening of stimulating discussion based on his newest work, Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump.
"Tracing the ebbs and flows of this far-right extremism in the United States over the last 20 years, Neiwert argues that white nationalist activity in the age of Trump is simply the latest flare-up of what he calls 'Alt-America, ' or the segment of the American population that has fed on conspiracy theories, racist misinformation, and deep distrust of federal institutions for decades."
