The critical issue of polarization threatens the wellbeing of our nation’s democracy. More than ever, we must begin to understand and address the forces that divide us. The Riley Institute Advance Team is honored to host journalist Ezra Klein this April as he discusses his new book Why We’re Polarized, which presents a framework for understanding the widening gaps between our political parties and among everyday Americans.

Mr. Klein will do a book signing after the program. Copies of his book will be available for purchase at the event.
