Join us for our Fall 2023 Democracy in Crisis event, a conversation with Jake Tapper, CNN anchor and chief Washington correspondent, and Lynette Clemetson, Director of Wallace House Center for Journalists. Their wide-ranging discussion will cover the state of democracy and the role and responsibility of the press in a democratic society, as well as how Tapper’s experience of being an anchor and correspondent informs his craft of writing fiction.
Tapper's newly released book, All the Demons Are Here, will be available for purchase at the event, through Literati Bookstore. The author will stay for a short book signing after the program.
This is a non-ticketed event, and is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
A livestream option will also be available on this webpage.
This event is presented by the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy in partnership with the Wallace House Center for Journalists, and U-M Democracy & Debate. Co-sponsored by the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan.
