NPC Headliners Book Event: Salena Zito & Brad Todd, "The Great Revolt"
Salena Zito and Brad Todd, co-authors of “The Great Revolt: Inside the Populist Coalition Reshaping American Politics” will appear at a National Press Club Headliners Book Event on Wednesday, May 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the club’s conference rooms. Zito and Todd traveled over 27,000 miles to interview more than three hundred Trump voters across ten swing counties to paint a picture of the new populist-conservative coalition: a complex mix of citizens from different economic classes with varying backgrounds and education levels. The authors use Zito’s reports from the field and Todd’s analysis of the electoral trends to argue that the mass media has oversimplified these voters and overlooked their significance in what they feel is a broader cultural shift that will extend well beyond Trump’s presidency. This event will feature a discussion with the author, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing. Tickets are $5 for National Press Club members and $10 for the general public. When purchasing tickets for this event online, buyers will also have the option of purchasing copies of the book at check-out. Books will also be available for purchase at the event. Proceeds from book sales will benefit the non-profit affiliate of the Club, the National Press Club Journalism Institute, so we kindly ask that you leave all outside books and memorabilia at home.
