Program Summary: Polemicist, author Thomas Frank ("What's the Matter With Kansas") made his final stop on the worldwide book tour at Kansas City's Public Library March 2017 for his latest, "Listen Liberal: Whatever Happened to the Party of the People?"

The day after Donald Trump was elected president, The New York Times recommended six books “for those trying to understand the political, economic, regional and social shifts that drove one of the most stunning political upsets in the nation’s history.” Among them: Thomas Frank’s Listen, Liberal: Or What Ever Happened to the Party of the People? Frank, a Kansas City native, has followed up, embarking on a 13-city barnstorming tour to talk to Trump voters, union leaders, and progressive activists across the Midwest in conjunction with Listen Liberal’s release in paperback. On his last stop in Kansas City he discusses what he has learned. This event is co-presented by Rainy Day Books.

Mr. Frank's presentation is introduced by Crosby Kemper III, the KC Central Library's executive director.  It includes the Q-n-A. (1 hr. 33 min.)
