Jeff Shesol - Supreme Power (in conversation w/ EJ DIONNE)

Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Beginning in 1935, the Supreme Court made a series of decisions that overturned much of FDR’s New Deal. In 1937 Roosevelt fought back, attempting to “pack the court” by increasing its membership to 15 and thereby circumventing its conservative majority. Shesol presents this tumultuous period as transformative for the country’s political and constitutional landscape. Shesol will be in conversation with E.J. Dionne of The Washington Post.
