Book Culture is excited to host Luke Mayville, author of John Adams and the Fear of American Oligarchy, on November 28th at our 112th St. location. This book presents the first extended exploration of Adams's preoccupation with a problem that has a renewed urgency today: the way in which inequality threatens to corrode democracy and empower a small elite. In anticipation of his upcoming talk, Luke was kind enough to answer a few questions for us.
