Published to coincide with the magazine’s anniversary, Insurrections of the Mind, features over 50 essays written by a notable collection of writers—among them Virginia Woolf, Vladimir Nabokov, George Orwell, Graham Greene, Philip Roth, Pauline Kael, Michael Lewis, and Zadie Smith. The essays cover a range of topics, including the New Deal; America’s role in the war; the rise and fall of communism; religion, race, and civil rights; the economy, terrorism, and technology; and the women’s movement and gay rights.

In celebration of The New Republic's 100th year anniversary, Franklin Foer, editor of The New Republic, joins the National Constitution Center for a conversation on the magazine’s recently released book exploring the pivotal issues of modern America – Insurrections of the Mind: 100 Years of Politics and Culture in America. Constitution Center President and CEO and New Republic legal affairs editor Jeffrey Rosen will moderate.

All guests will receive a copy of the book as part of admission.
