August 3, 2020, 7:00 PM

Rampant misinformation. Partisan unilateralism. Suppression of dissent with brutal, militarized tactics.

At a time when many think that America is flirting with authoritarianism, how can we navigate the path ahead to preserving our democracy? Masha Gessen, author of the timely and incisive Surviving Autocracy, returns to BHS to share this latest work and their unique perspective as a witness to the resurgence of autocratic rule. Gessen is joined in conversation by humorist and columnist for the Washington Post Alexandra Petri.
