Join a lively conversation on Bend, OR, community, belonging, social values, and the state of whiteness in America. What's it like to live in a magnificent place--that's also a White utopia? Join a lively conversation on Bend, OR, community, belonging, social values, and the state of whiteness in America. Rich Benjamin will offer lessons on what this "Whitopia" can teach us about the rest of the country today.
A journalist-adventurer, Rich Benjamin is the author of "Searching for Whitopia: An Improbable Journey to the Heart of White America," which was selected as an Editor's Choice by Booklist and The American Library Association. Benjamin is one of few analysts to have correctly predicted in advance the passage of Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump. Benjamin's cultural and political analysis appear regularly in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, CNN, MSNBC, and FOX Business.
Light snacks provided. Beverages available for purchase. Roundabout Books will be selling copies of his book.
