American Forum - C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy
October 22, 2010
11:00AM - 12:00PM (EDT)
In his book, bestselling author JEFF SHARLET examines the political power wielded by a Christian fundamentalist group known as “The Family,” which includes some members of Congress. A contributing editor for Harper's and Rolling Stone, he co-founded an online literary magazine, KillingTheBuddha.com, in 2000. This led to a travelogue based on the year Sharlet and co-author Peter Manseau spent exploring the margins of faith in America. Sharlet has also served as an associate research scholar at New York University's Center for Religion and Media, and he joined the Dartmouth College faculty this year. A book signing will follow his Forum.
