Parker Lecture this Thursday September 27th @ 7PM - Michael Charney "Chasing Glenn Beck"
Michael Charney a local publisher and author located in Bedford, New Hampshire has recently published a book of narrative non-fiction that chronicles an attempt to uncover why political conversation suffers such polarization and, in particular, why the loudest voices–regardless of content–so easily see their messages amplified endlessly through Twitter and other social media. Chasing Glenn Beck is a fascinating discussion on today’s political climate. With discussions about politics, schools, national security, bullying, the Pledge of Allegiance, the Flag Code–and the Senate’s Candy Desk–Charney cuts a wide swath through the issues facing our country, a country he claims has a serious case of “Electile Dysfunction.” This lecture is part of the Moses Greeley Parker Lecture Series.
