British Library Event on "American Afflictions"

 I have been invited to participate in an event run by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library, entitled American Afflictions at Home and Abroad: New analyses of the USA when the authors of three new studies of the USA discuss their books and answer questions from the audience. This takes place on the evening of 28 April.
