P&P Live!: Garrett Peck - A Decade of Disruption

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 21, 2020 - 3:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series.

An eye-opening history evoking the disruptive first decade of the twenty-first century in America. The United States experienced a turbulent first decade of the 21st century, tumultuous years of economic crises, social and technological change, and war. This "lost decade" (2000-2010) was bookended by two financial crises: the dot-com meltdown, followed by the Great Recession. Banks deemed "too big to fail" were rescued when the federal government bailed them out, but meanwhile millions lost their homes to foreclosure and witnessed the wipeout of their retirement savings. A Decade of Disruption is a timely re-examination of the recent past that reveals how we've arrived at our current era of cultural division.

Garrett Peck, the author of six books, is an American historian who serves on the advisory council of the Woodrow Wilson House in Washington, D.C. He has lectured at the Library of Congress, the National Archives, the National Museum of American History, and the Smithsonian Institution.

 

Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business.  

The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a copy of the book from our website, which you can reach from the green button in the event.

We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
