Ari Berman: Give Us the Ballot

In the lead-up to the 2018 midterm elections, the issues of gerrymandering, voter registration, and voter suppression are on the minds of many. Ari Berman, a senior reporter for Mother Jones and a Fellow at The Nation Institute, is an expert on these topics and will address them and others in this Book Festival talk. His book, Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America, was published in August 2015 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, and is as relevant as ever. This event is co-sponsored by the Johnson County League of Women Voters and the University of Iowa Public Policy Center. Friday, Oct. 5, 7 p.m. at the Iowa City Public Library, mtg. Room A.
