Nolan Higdon -- "United States of Distraction"

Nolan Higdon will speak about and sign his new book, United States of Distraction: Media Manipulation in Post-Truth America (and What We Can Do about It), on Thursday, February 20th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
The role of news media in a free society is to investigate, inform, and provide a crucial check on political power. But does it? Journalism's essential role has been drastically compromised, and Donald Trump's repeated claims of "fake news" and framing of the media as "an enemy of the people" have made a bad scenario worse. United States of Distraction offers a clear, concise appraisal of our current situation, and presents readers with action items for how to improve it.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
