The first of nine children born to Jenny Moore and the Right Rev. Paul Moore Jr, Honor Moore inherited her mother’s papers when Jenny died in 1973 at age 50. Haunted by them for decades, it was only after establishing herself as a poet and biographer that she could broach the bequest. In this companion volume to her acclaimed The Bishop's Daughter, Moore tells the story of an independent-minded woman who defied her upper-crust Boston family to marry a war hero, join him as an active partner in his progressive ministry, and at last realize her dream of writing. Intertwining excerpts from her mother’s manuscripts with her own experiences, Moore charts the courses of two remarkable women along with the second-wave feminism that shaped them both.

When Joe Mendelson, an idealistic young lawyer, filed a petition in 1999 requesting that the EPA regulate gas emissions from new cars, no one expected him to get very far. But Mendelson persisted, and, joined by twelve states, several cities—including D.C.—and organizations such as the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and the NRDC, eventually brought a successful suit before the Supreme Court. In this compelling account of the 2007 Massachusetts v. EPA decision, Lazarus, a Harvard Law professor who has represented the government and environmental groups in forty Supreme Court cases, tells the inside story of this landmark environmental ruling—one the Trump administration threatens to overturn.

An award-winning writer for The Atlantic and host of the magazine’s online video series, You Are Here: The Incredible Science Behind Everyday Life, Khazan wondered about the connection between her professional struggles and successes and her early years, when, a Russian immigrant in West Texas, she never felt quite in synch. Combining scientific research, her own experience, and profiles of people at odds with their environments—a female NASCAR driver, the transgender mayor of a small town, a Muslim in a predominantly Christian community, and others—Khazan explores why conformity is so important, examines what happens to those alienated from it, and urges us to understand difference as a strength, not a failing.

Kendzior follows her bestselling collection of essays, The View from Flyover Country—which featured her incisive reporting on St. Louis and the 2016 election—with an equally revelatory look at the decades- long breakdown of institutions that led to Trump’s presidency. Charting Trump’s rise from the 1980s along with the concurrent erosion of civil liberties and widening of economic inequality throughout the country, Kendzior shows the inherent fragility of American democracy and documents the signs—which most people missed—of our turn toward authoritarianism. She also reflects on how this socio-political shift has impacted her own life and calls on all of us to confront the injustice in order to end it.

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

An award-winning immigrant rights activist, lawyer, and professor at New York University School of Law, where she also co-directs the NYU Immigrant Rights Clinic, Das in her important new book shows that Trump’s anti-immigration stand is only the latest—if most extreme—iteration of a long history of the idea of the “criminal alien.” Combining detailed analysis of the system—which more closely resembles a “deportation machine”—with stories of some of the 300,000 caught up in it annually, Das shows how immigrants are divided into categories like “deserving” or “undeserving,” with the bulk of the latter targeted for minor offenses. Only by confronting this cruelty, she argues, can we build an inclusive immigration policy based on human dignity. Das will be in conversation with Dara Lind, a reporter on immigration for ProPublica and former senior correspondent at Vox. She is the co-host of Vox's podcast The Weeds.

Recent polls show that 74% of Americans believe a secret cadre of some sort is manipulating national policy. Trump supporters blame intelligence agencies, while the left, mindful of the misinformation about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, warn against the military-industrial complex. In the first deeply-reported investigation of this purported state-within-a state, Rohde, a two-time Pulitzer-winning journalist—now an executive editor of The New Yorker website and a CNN global affairs analyst—draws on his experience covering global and domestic politics, along with extensive interviews with CIA operatives and FBI agents of all levels, to determine whether these agencies are protecting the country or undermining it.
