Events at The Wharf
Friday, November 16, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

In this comprehensive report about Russia's interference in the 2016 election, Miller adroitly summarizes and analyzes what we know so far about the Kremlin's hijacking of Facebook and Twitter, its hacking of Democratic National Committee computers, contacts between Trump campaign figures and Russian officials and operatives, Trump's possible obstruction of justice in trying to influence investigations by former FBI director James Comey and other intelligence officials, and more. Miller, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post national security reporter, interviewed  hundreds of people in Trump's inner circle, current and former government officials, individuals with close ties to the White House, members of the law enforcement and intelligence communities, and foreign officials. The result is a penetrating look at an unprecedented and dangerous chain of events.

Miller will be in conversation with Bradley Graham, co-owner of Politics and Prose.

The smartphone has radically changed the way people conduct their personal and professional lives, and the revolution has been especially striking in India. Much as the car became the literal and figurative vehicle for American freedom and success, the phone is unleashing India’s creative, social, and economic potential—and doing in a single generation what unfolded over decades in the West. Drawing on interviews with a wide range of people from all across the country, Agrawal, former chief CNN India correspondent, vividly shows how the new technology is overturning established conventions and traditions. Yet widespread as the digital revolution is—by 2020, some 700 million Indians will be online—it hasn’t solved India’s problems of caste, income disparity, and illiteracy.
