Join us as author George Leef explores themes of identity politics, gun rights, and the rule of law, based on his newly released book, The Awakening of Jennifer Van Arsdale: A Political Fable For Our Time.

Book description: Progressive journalist Jennifer Van Arsdale was thrilled to be chosen to write the biography of America’s first woman president, Patricia Farnsworth, whom she admired for her transformation of the U.S. But after two days of interviews with Farnsworth in her magnificent California home, Jennifer is attacked by thugs in the formerly safe and prosperous town of Laguna Beach. A Black veteran with an illegal gun saves her from harm and she feels compelled to listen to what he and his friends have to say about what has become of their state and country—all of it contrary to her beliefs. What Jennifer does next will throw America into an uproar.

After the presentation, there will be an opportunity for Q&A for those who are attending in-person.
