Join Elly Lonon, author of Amongst the Liberal Elite, in conversation with Elaine Weiss, author of The Woman’s Hour.
“Amongst the Liberal Elite is the book everyone with outrage fatigue (and a sense of humor) needs.” –Jen Mann, New York Times best selling author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat
Getting woke is hard. As this couple is discovering under 45’s regime, it takes more than listening to NPR on our daily commutes and watching Jon Stewart cameos on our phones in bed while we sip craft beer from artisanal glassware made by at-risk women on another continent to make us global citizens.

Based on her succesful McSweeney’s column, Elly Lonon’s Amongst the Liberal Elite: The Road Trip Exploring Societal Inequities Solidified by Trump (RESIST) is a “sharply observed, witty, generous, self-mocking epic…gift for anyone who’s ever taken a journey from the frying-pan of their own head to the oven of our burning world.” (Emily Flake, cartoonist for The New Yorker and author of Mama Tried)
