Political theorist David Moscrop will read from Too Dumb for Democracy?: Why We Make Bad Political Decisions and How We Can Make Better Ones on Wednesday, Oct. 2, as part of the Lorenzo Reading Series.

Brexit. Trump. Ford Nation. In this timely book, David Moscrop asks why we make irrational political decisions and whether our stone-age brains can process democracy in the information age.

Mr. Moscrop is a political theorist with an interest in democratic deliberation and citizenship. He is a regular writer for Maclean’s, a contributing columnist to the Washington Post, and a regular political commentator on television and radio. He has also authored pieces in numerous other newspapers and magazines including the Globe and Mail and National Post.

Mr. Moscrop will read from his new book on Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. in the Ganong Hall Lecture Theatre, UNB Saint John.

The Lorenzo Reading Series acknowledges the support of The League of Canadian Poets, UNB Saint John, UNB Saint John Bookstore, and its private reading sponsors.
