GANESH SITARAMAN with PAUL CONSTANT at Town Hall

 

Co-presented with TOWN HALL CIVICS Series.

Legal scholar (Vanderbilt Law School, Fellow at the Center for American Progress), activist (working with Senator Elizabeth Warren), and author (The Counterinsurgent’s Constitution) is here with an extremely timely book, The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution: Why Economic Inequality Threatens Our Republic (Knopf).

“What Piketty was to economics, this book is to our constitutional tradition. Sitaraman uncovers the lost essence to our constitutional past, and renders it as important today as it ever was. His beautifully written and powerfully argued book will change the discourse of constitutionalism—for the better.” —Lawrence Lessig.

“Ganesh Sitaraman is a bold and visionary thinker whose new book, The Crisis of the Middle Class Constitution, shows that the disappearing American dream is more than a policy problem—it is a constitutional crisis. In our age of growing inequality, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Every American needs to read this book.” —Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Joining him in conversation this evening will be Paul Constant of the Seattle Review of Books.

$5 tickets are available at the door or in advance via www.townhallseattle.org (1.888.377.4510). Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca).
