Conversations: Truth, Myth & Democracy

September 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

CONVERSATIONS: TRUTH, MYTH & DEMOCRACY – AN EVENING OF DISCUSSION: The Mark Twain Library and the Redding League of Women Voters will present the third installment of the series “Conversations: Truth, Myth & Democracy” with Dr. Yuval Levin of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and Dr. William Galston of the Brookings Institution, moderated by WCSU Professor of Psychology Dr. Daniel Barrett. This virtual discussion at 7:30 p.m. is between two noted social and political thinkers who will examine the causes and consequences of a divided America and explore how a revival of some of the principles of our political tradition can contribute to solving our national challenges.

The Conversations series is a grassroots effort that continues to examine the underlying meaning of our democracy and how democracy matters even when we have different ideas about what it should look like. The focus is on addressing the difficult issues of truth telling and myth busting by bringing much-needed community conversations to help promote education, informed dialogue and civil discourse. The series is brought to you in association with Easton Public Library, Newtown’s C.H. Booth Library, Ridgefield Library, Weston Public Library, The League of Women Voters of Ridgefield and the League of Women Voters of Northern Fairfield County.
