John Judis on Populism
Folio: the Seattle Athenaeum, Thursday, March 2 at 7pm
John B. Judis, a leading American journalist, has just published “The Populist Explosion,” an incisive examination of the rise of populism on both the right (Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen) and the left (Bernie Sanders). He traces this central development in contemporary politics to the 2008 recession and the way it discredited the faltering neoliberal agenda. He urges readers not to brush off populism as demagoguery but to pay attention to the issues that populists raise: illegal immigration, the dominance of the billionaire class, the dysfunctional Euro, income gaps, and the dislocations caused by free trade. Populist movements are unstable compounds that can tilt left or right, and they are sure signs that a political consensus is busting apart.

Steve Olson: The Risky Northwest
Folio: the Seattle Athenaeum, Wednesday, March 22 at 7pm
Steve Olson, a leading science writer in our region, will focus on the risks of living in the seemingly bucolic Pacific Northwest. Olson’s acclaimed book, “Eruption: The Untold Story of Mount St. Helens,” is just out with a new paperback edition. The author’s next book focuses on the plutonium project at Hanford Nuclear Reservation, an amazing, untold scientific saga. “Eruption” is notable for all the Northwest history (logging, wilderness protection, Weyerhaeuser’s holdings, and politics) that he weaves into the story. A production company has recently bought the movie rights to the book.

Friday May 27th at Noon - Stephen Hunter signs G-Man

Retired Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger has finally sold the old family homestead in Arkansas. The developer digs up a metal case that contains material from his grandfather, Charles, who died before Bob was born, and a man his own father never talked about. The items date to 1934, to the era of the tommygun, and concern a man so violent his was kicked out of the Chicago Outfit. The new TV series “Sniper” is based on the movie Sniper which was based on Hunter’s first Swagger book, Point of Impact. It’s a series JB highly recommends, especially for those who have run out of Reacher to read.

Now a formal event!
