Conversations: Truth, Myth & Democracy
March 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
As part of our on-going series “Conversations”, created in partnership with the Redding League of Women Voters and the Mark Twain Library, we invite you to join us for a virtual discussion with acclaimed historian Dr. Jelani Cobb and renowned philosopher Dr. Jason Stanley. The program will be moderated by award-winning journalist Tina Rosenberg and examines the underlying meaning of our democracy and how democracy can matter even when we have very different ideas about what it should look like.
This evening is part of a series that is devoted to exploring how caring citizens from disparate groups can find common ground at a time when the tenets of American democracy have been challenged by the questioning of truth and the fostering of myth. Through informed dialogue and civil discourse we’ll examine the underlying meaning of our democracy and how democracy can matter even when we have very different ideas about what it should look like.
This event is brought to you in association with Easton Public Library, Weston Public Library, Friends of the Weston Public Library, Newtown’s C.H. Booth Library, The League of Women Voters of Weston and The League of Women Voters of Northern Fairfield Count; and, in partnership with media sponsor WSHU Public Radio.
