Join Nation Books author Sarah Jaffe at the Seattle Public Central Library on Monday, August 22nd for a discussion and book signing of her new title, Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt.
The US is witnessing a moment of unprecedented political engagement and social activism. Pundits who once fretted about Americans' apathy have, in the last few years, borne witness to uprisings and protests across the country: the growth of the Tea Party, the successful fight for a $15 minimum wage, #BlackLivesMatter, Occupy Wall Street, and the grassroots networks supporting presidential candidates like Bernie Sanders. In Necessary Trouble, Jaffe leads readers into the heart of these movements, explaining what has made ordinary Americans from Seattle to St. Louis to Atlanta become activists.
Co-presented with SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
