Yale University historian Greg Grandin's iconoclastic 2020 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction winner maps the political and intellectual contours of the idea of American frontier itself. After 400 years of expansion, the rage of the U.S. boundary regions begins to contract inward on itself, with the Trump Administration (and the "The Wall") as their political (and physical) symbol. Talk by Dr. Grandin at D.C.'s Politics & Prose Bookstore on the back half!
