Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump

Library hosts author David Neiwert: Thursday March 29 at 5 p.m.

Join author David Neiwert at the Library for a discussion on his new book “Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump.” An investigative reporter with over 20 years of study and research on the growth of neo-nationalism in the United States, David examines the history of a once small fringe movement many feel help elect Donald Trump as president.

  • “ “Alt-America,” researcher David Neiwert goes back decades to assemble the players and turning points that pushed the fringe toward the mainstream.” Washington Post

  • “Investigative reporter David Neiwert has been tracking extremists for more than two decades. In Alt-America, he provides a deeply researched and authoritative report on the growth of fascism and far-right terrorism, the violence of which in the last decade has surpassed anything inspired by Islamist or other ideologies in the United States. The product of years of reportage, and including the most in-depth investigation of Trump’s ties to the far right, this is a crucial book about one of the most disturbing aspects of American society.” Google Books
