America is under attack and the weapon is disinformation. So says Barbara McQuade, a legal analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, a former U.S. District Attorney of Eastern Michigan, and a University of Michigan law professor.
Barbara writes about how authoritarians throughout history have manipulated the truth to advance their own agendas in her new book, Attack From Within – the psychological tactics they use, why they work, and how the digital age is making the threat more potent everyday. She also offers solutions and aims to inspire a national conversation about renewing this country to a democracy.
Please join Barbara and guest host John Bacon, in what’s sure to be a compelling conversation.
Doors open at 6 pm with live music and a cash bar. The conversation starts at 7 p.m. and is followed by a book signing.
