P&P Live!: Carl Hoffman – Liar's Circus: A Strange and Terrifying Journey Into the Upside-Down World of Trump's MAGA Rallies - in conversation with Liza Mundy

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, September 1, 2020 - 7:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

In this daring work of immersive journalism, based on hundreds of hours of reporting, Carl Hoffman, who has written about the most dangerous and remote corners of the world, journeys deep inside Donald Trump's rallies, seeking to understand the strange and powerful tribe that forms the president's base. Hoffman pierced this alternate society, welcomed in and initiated into its rights and upside-down beliefs, and finally ushered to its inner sanctum. Equally freewheeling and profound, Liar's Circus tracks the MAGA faithful across five thousand miles of the American heartland during a crucial arc of the Trump presidency stretching from the impeachment saga to the dawn of the coronavirus pandemic that ended the rallies as we know it.

Carl Hoffman is the author of the New York Times bestseller Savage Harvest, hailed as a "masterpiece" by Outside and named a New York Times editors' choice and one of the Washington Post's 50 notable works of nonfiction for 2014, as well as The Lunatic Express. He is a former contributing editor to National Geographic Traveler and Wired, and has traveled on assignment to eighty countries.

Liza Mundy is an award-winning journalist and New York Times-bestselling author of four books including Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II. A former staff writer for the Washington Post, Mundy is also the author of Michelle: A Biography, a 2008 biography of former First Lady Michelle Obama.
