  • Our Gilded Capital

    This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral—Plus, Plenty of Valet Parking!—in America's Gilded Capital In this funny—yet seriously insightful—keynote, Mark Leibovich takes on Washington and everyone in it. Based on his #1 New York Times bestseller, This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral—Plus, Plenty of Valet Parking!—in America's Gilded Capital, he describes a city loathed from every corner of the nation, yet drunk on its own self-regard. These are fun and busy days in Washington, a nexus of big politics, big money, big media, and big vanity. There are no Democrats and Republicans anymore in the nation’s capital, just millionaires. That is the grubby secret of This Town in the twenty-first century. Through Leibovich’s eyes, we discover how the funeral for a beloved newsman becomes the social event of the year. How political reporters are fetishized for their ability to get their names into the predawn email sent out by the city’s most powerful and puzzled-over journalist. How a disgraced Hill aide can overcome ignominy and maybe emerge with a more potent “brand” than many elected members of Congress. And how an administration bent on “changing Washington” can be sucked into the ways of This Town with the same ease with which Tea Party insurgents can, once elected, settle into it like a warm bath. Outrageous and fascinating, Leibovich’s talk is a must-hear: whether you’re inside the Beltway, or just curious about what life there has become.

  • The Future of Democracy

    Should You Really Hate Politics? How to be Angry at the Right Things and the Right People Can the citizen outrage directed towards our politicians produce real change? Or are we trapped in a loop of cable news screaming matches? In this talk, Mark Leibovich looks at what the average American can do to win back control of politics. What questions should you be asking politicians? How do you navigate the nexus of big politics, big money, and big media to address real concerns that affect your everyday life? How will the electorate's eagerness to disrupt politics-as-we-know-it dramatically shape the 2016 presidential election? And will social media be the salvation or the ruination of political activism? America has arrived at a tipping point in which the disconnect between the self-regard of politicians and the nation's disgust in them is no longer sustainable. Leibovich has seen the decadence and decay. But he's also seen first hand that the country's hunger for change, resilience, and yes, activism remains as strong as ever. From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of This Town comes a talk, shorn of cynicism, that looks at practical things you can do to course-correct the future of our democracy.
