Truth, Myth & Democracy
April 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
CONVERSATIONS: TRUTH, MYTH & DEMOCRACY: The Mark Twain Library and the Redding League of Women Voters present the second installment of the series, “Conversations: Truth, Myth & Democracy” with Dr. Ty Seidule of Hamilton College and Dr. Charles Dew of Williams College, moderated by Western Connecticut State University’s Dr. Daniel Barrett. This virtual discussion from 7:30 to 9 p.m. is between two Civil War historians who grew up in the South and whose research took them both to some very personal revelations about their own beliefs. Those revelations are the subject of their books and of our conversation. 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 very different ideas about what it should look like.
This particular program is the second in a series that focuses on addressing the difficult issues of truth telling and myth busting within our democracy 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, Weston Public Library, Friends of the Weston Public Library, Newtown’s C.H. Booth Library, Ridgefield Library, The League of Women Voters of Weston, The League of Women Voters of Ridgefield and The League of Women Voters of Northern Fairfield County.
