Join Book Culture on Columbus and Harper's Magazine on Thursday, May 3rd at 7pm as David Faris discusses It's Time to Fight Dirty: How Democrats Can Build a Lasting Majority in American Politics at Book Culture on Columbus!

To be published before the 2018 midterm elections, an accessible, actionable blueprint for how Democrats can build a lasting majority

The American electoral system is clearly failing--more horrifically in the 2016 presidential election than ever before. In It's Time to Fight Dirty, David Faris expands on his popular series for "The Week" to offer party leaders and supporters concrete strategies for lasting political reform--and in doing so lays the groundwork for a more progressive future. With equal parts playful irreverence and persuasive reasoning, It's Time to Fight Dirty is essential reading as we head toward the 2018 midterms . . . and beyond.
