Join us for an evening wti Claire Conner, author of  Wrapped In The Flag, A Personal History of America's Radical Right

Claire Conner is the daughter of two of the first members of the John Birch Society.  Her parents forced her to join the Society at age 13, their youngest member.  It was with great courage that she finally split from the JBS.

Claire Conner writes of the connections between the JBS and the Tea Party of today.

    "Claire Conner has performed a great service by reminding us of the origins of some of the most virulent ideas that continue to pollute our body politic.  ......a clear-eyed, insider's account of the persistent dangers of right-wing extremism."    - Charles Kaiser, author of 1968 in America and The Gay Metropolis
