Author Ellis Cose: The Short Life & Curious Death of Free Speech in America
Join a live, interactive conversation with critically acclaimed journalist and bestselling author Ellis Cose on his latest book, “The Short Life & Curious Death of Free Speech in America.” Cose’s powerful new book explores 1 of the most essential rights in America – free speech – and reveals how it is crumbling under the combined weight of polarization, technology, money, and systemized lying. He argues the safeguards built into the Constitution to protect free speech and democracy have instead become instruments of suppression. Cose offers an eye-opening examination of the state of free speech in America today, litigating ideas that touch on every American’s life. Ellis Cose was a Newsweek columnist and contributing editor for 17yrs, chairman of the editorial board of the New York Daily News, and the inaugural writer in residence for the ACLU. Cose will be in conversation with Nadine Strossen, the John Marshall Harlan II Professor of Law, Emerita, at New York Law School. Strossen previously served as President of the American Civil Liberties Union from 1991 to 2008.On-line program presented by the Lewes Public Library.NOTE: this meeting is being conducted through Zoom.
