Robby Soave on Young Radicals in the Age of Trump

Sat, August 17, 2019  6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Reason Magazine’s Robby Soave will join AFF-Chicago to discuss his new book, Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump

About this Event

Since the 2016 election, college campuses have erupted in violent protests, demands for safe spaces, and the silencing of views that activist groups find disagreeable. Who are the leaders behind these protests, and what do they want?

In Panic Attack, libertarian journalist Robby Soave answers these questions by profiling young radicals from across the political spectrum.

Join AFF-Chicago and Robby Soave for a reception and conversation about Panic Attack and what the future holds for youth activism in America in our increasingly polarized political age.

Happy hour begins at 6pm. Conversation begins at 6:30pm. Tickets are $10 and include complimentary food and two drink tickets. Tickets including a copy of Panic Attack are $30. (Ticket orders including books must be made by Wednesday, August 14.)
