    Thom Hartmann will be appearing at the Sportsman Lodge speaking on his latest book The "Hidden History of the War on Voting"

    The talk begins at 1:30 pm and will run to 4:30 pm with a book signing to follow.

    Donald Trump was elected by only 26 percent of eligible voters. Unfortunately, this is not a bug in our system; it’s a feature. Thom Hartmann unveils the strategies and tactics that conservative elites in this country have used form the foundation of the electoral college to the latest voter ID laws, to protect their interests by preventing “the wrong people”— such as the poor, women, people of color—from voting while making it more convenient for the wealthy and white. Thom will layout how to fight back.

    This engaging and brutally honest, and meticulously documented book is a must-read for every American who recognizes that our common future depends on achieving the democracy we thought we had but never did. " 

    — David Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World

    Thom will be joined by special guests Stephanie Miller and Greg Palast
