Upcoming talk on Democracy and Political Ignorance in Morristown, NJ

This Wednesday, June 25, I will be speaking about my book Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter, in Morristown, NJ, at a talk sponsored by the Federalist Society Lawyers Division. The event runs from 6:30 to 8:30 PM and is open to the public. My talk will probably start around 7:30. Location details and RSVP here (though the announcement is incorrect in saying that the event runs only until 8).

Ilya Somin is Professor of Law at George Mason University. His research focuses on constitutional law, property law, and popular political participation. He is the author of "The Grasping Hand: Kelo v. City of New London and the Limits of Eminent Domain" and "Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter."
