Join us online for an evening with New York Times editorial board member Jesse Wegman. In "Let The People Pick The President: the case for abolishing the Electoral College" Wegman makes a powerful case for choosing presidents based on a national popular vote. Two of the last five presidential elections have been won by the candidate who lost the popular vote, calling the integrity of America's entire electoral system into question.
Dr. Caroline Tolbert, Professor of Political Science at the University of Iowa, will moderate the discussion.
LIT Talks - a series of occasional events designed to bring the authors of books about politics and social engagement to the library to discuss the ideas in those books are sponsored by the Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature and the Iowa City Public Library.
