About the event
Join Dr. Brandon Warmke at 4 pm in the Benson Center suite (Kittredge Central, 2nd Floor) for a preview of journalist Kimberley Strassel's lecture "The Biden Malaise," a talk based on her recent book The Biden Malaise: How America Bounces Back from Joe Biden's Dismal Repeat of the Jimmy Carter Years. Dr. Warmke will help explain the book's major ideas and explore several questions with students: Why does Strassel think the Carter years were so bad? Is she correct? Is the Biden presidency a repeat of Carter's? Why or why not? What are Strassel's suggestions for moving America forward after Biden? How should we think about these proposals?
