Upcoming talk on “Democracy and Political Ignorance” at Amherst College (Rescheduled)

April 8, 2014

On April 17, from 8-9 PM, I will be giving a talk on my book Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter, at my alma mater, Amherst College. Location and other details are available here.

This presentation was rescheduled from its original date, March 25, because I could not make it to Amherst on that day due to my flight being snowed out, which is why I am posting about it a second time. I am very happy to have this opportunity to return to my alma mater, and thank the Amherst Political Science Department and the Committee for the American Founding for the invitation. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate this time!
