Pulitzer prize-winning columnist and author Maureen Dowd will discuss her latest book The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics and current political events with Andrew Rosenthal an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times June 2016 and previous Editorial Page editor.
Maureen Dowd details a perilous and shocking 2016 campaign season in The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics and traces the psychologies and pathologies in one of the nastiest and most significant battles of the sexes ever. Trapped between two candidates with the highest recorded unfavorables, the coverage features Dowd’s trademark cocktail of wry humor and acerbic analysis in dispatches from the political madhouse.
