County Public Libraries Hosting Virtual Meet-the-Author Event

Montgomery County Public Libraries will host a virtual meet-the-author event on Wednesday, June 17, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The event will feature The Atlantic Monthly contributor Gregg Easterbrook. 

Throughout the event, Easterbrook will discuss his latest nonfiction work, “It’s Better Than It Looks: Reasons for Optimism in an Age of Fear.” After summarizing his work, a discussion will take place.

The MCPL website states, “We have riots over brutality and racism in policing. We have a global pandemic. What is there to be optimistic about? Talk with Gregg Easterbrook, author of It’s Better Than It Looks: reasons for optimism in an age of fear (2018) and consider his view that by almost every meaningful measure, the modern world is better than it ever has been.”

The event will take place via zoom.  Follow the instructions below to join the meeting.
