Nichols, the author and co-author of many books including “Outsider in the White House,” “Uprising: How Wisconsin Renewed the Politics of Protest, from Madison to Wall Street,” and “The S Word: A Short History of an American Tradition: Socialism.” Nichols will assess the 2016 presidential election campaign, the chaos within the GOP re: Donald Trump’s front-runner status, the future of Bernie Sanders’ progressive movement and discuss his new book, co-written with Robert McChesney titled, “People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a ‘Citizenless’ Democracy.”
  2. Christopher Vials, director of American Studies, Associate Professor of English at the University of Connecticut and author of “Haunted by Hitler: Liberals, the Left and the Fight against Fascism in the U.S.,” discusses his views on Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy, examining the ways in which he believes Trump is part of the fascist tradition. He’ll also examine the history of fascist movements in the U.S., and the role of corporate media in boosting public support for Trump’s campaign.

  4. Nick Collins, a member of the group Billionaires & Oligarchs Opposing Bernie Sanders, or B.O.O.B.S., “a grassroots network of CEOs, Wall Street bankers, lobbyists, war profiteers, whose mission is to ensure that the poor and middle classes vote against their own best interest — and Stopping Bernie Sanders’ campaign for the presidency.” He’ll talk about the comedic and serious work his group is doing in this year’s presidential election campaign.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

After veteran Kevin O’Hara returned from the war in Vietnam, he felt rootless. So he went to Ireland, his parents’ homeland, in search of his roots. Along the way, he met a bevy of wonderful and wise characters, and made friends with one phenomenal donkey named Missy. He tells about his journey in Last Of The Donkey Pilgrims. There’s a lot of hatred being directed toward immigrants these days. But our nation’s tables would be far poorer without the cuisines they bring to our shores. Growing the vegetables that go into those dishes together with other immigrants who have made the same journey is often a way to deal with the pain of loss and transition. Patricia Klindienst explores this theme in her book, The Earth Knows My Name: Food, Culture, and Sustainability in the Gardens of Ethnic Americans.
