In his new book, If We Can Keep It: How the Republic Collapsed and Might be Saved, Daily Beast special correspondent Michael Tomasky offers an original account of the deep roots of political polarization in America and—in a refreshing and hopeful twist—offers an agenda for how to fix it. Lana Ulrich, in-house counsel at the National Constitution Center, moderates. A book sale and signing will follow the program.

This program is available for 1.0 substantive CLE credit. The National Constitution Center regularly applies for and receives CLE credit in PA, CA, NY, IL, TX, and DE for live events. Credit is also available in AK, AZ, CO, CT, NH, and NJ. All other U.S. jurisdictions allow attorneys to self-apply for credit for live events held outside their state.
