Instead of a set ticket price, we have provided a couple different ways for you to attend this event. If you'd like to purchase a copy of the book, you will not be charged an extra fee for a ticket, and we can either ship your copy, or you can retrieve it at one of our stores.
Additionally, you can contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. 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.
We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming as accessible as possible. If you are unable to support us with a purchase, you can register for the event for free. We thank you for support, now and always.
