Reading Through It Book Club - Dark Money

You're scared and confused. We're scared and confused, too. Donald Trump winning the election on a platform of racism, sexism, and fear has forced all of us to admit what we don't know. What happens now? The Seattle Review of Books and Seattle Weekly are hosting Reading Through It, a monthly book club exploring who we are as Americans, where we're going, and how to fix it. The only cure for fear and confusion is knowledge, so let's learn together.

Our July selection is Dark Money by Jane Mayer. Who are the immensely wealthy right-wing ideologues shaping the fate of America today? From the bestselling author of The Dark Side, an electrifying work of investigative journalism that uncovers the agenda of this powerful group. In her new preface, Jane Mayer discusses the results of the most recent election and Donald Trump's victory, and how, despite much discussion to the contrary, this was a huge victory for the billionaires who have been pouring money in the American political system.
