Join us at City Lit Books for a reading and conversation with David Faris, author of It’s Time to Fight Dirty: How Progressives Can Build a Lasting Majority in American Politics. David Faris will be in conversation with Regina Buccola.
The American electoral system is clearly failing--more horrifically in the 2016 presidential election than ever before. In It's Time to Fight Dirty, David Faris expands on his popular series for "The Week" to offer party leaders and supporters concrete strategies for lasting political reform--and in doing so lays the groundwork for a more progressive future. With equal parts playful irreverence and persuasive reasoning, It's Time to Fight Dirty is essential reading as we head toward the 2018 midterms . . . and beyond.
David Faris is the author of Dissent and Revolution in a Digital Age: Social Media, Blogging and Activism in Egypt, the co-editor of Social Media in Iran: Politics and Society After 2009, and a regular contributor to The Week. He holds a PhD in political science from the University of Pennsylvania and is associate professor of political science at Roosevelt University in Chicago.
Regina Buccola is Professor of English and Chair of the Humanities at Roosevelt University in Chicago, where she also serves as Director of Literature and Languages and core faculty in Women’s and Gender Studies.
