Greensboro | Dr. Norman Ornstein Discusses Broken Politics

04/12/2018 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The League of Women Voters of the Piedmont Triad is bringing nationally renowned political scientist Norman Ornstein to Greensboro on April 12, 2018.

Dr. Ornstein, a resident scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute (AEI), will give a free public talk at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) in the Elliott University Center auditorium from 7 to 9 PM. The talk will be hosted by UNCG’s Department of Political Science.

In North Carolina and across the country, people with differing points of view are asking the same questions: How did our political system become so broken? What can we do to fix it?

No one on the national stage is better able to help us answer these questions than Dr. Norman Ornstein. He is seen regularly on FOX, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NPR, C-SPAN, and heard on PBS. His articles have been published in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Politico, and The Washington Post, among others. He is the author of several bestselling books, including The Broken Branch: How Congress is Failing America and How to Get it Back on Track (2006) and It’s Even Worse Than it Was: How the American Constitutional System Collided with the New Politics of Extremism (2016), both with Thomas E. Mann. His most recent book is One Nation after Trump: A Guide for the Perplexed, the Disillusioned, the Desperate, and the Not-Yet-Deported with E.J. Dionne and Thomas E. Mann (2017). 

Dr. Ornstein’s lecture is free and open to the public. Parking for the event is also free. RSVP to acquire instructions for free parking and driving directions at: :https://goo.gl/forms/V1zHvVKSxJNAeDpv2
