MinnPost Live: A Conversation with Sasha Issenberg

  • This event has passed.

Author Sasha Issenberg will discuss his new book, “The Engagement,” which tells the expansive story of the struggle over same-sex marriage in the United States, from the first legal same-sex weddings in Massachusetts to the epic face-off over California’s Proposition 8 and, finally, to several landmark Supreme Court decisions. MinnPost Editor Andy Putz will moderate the conversation.

This virtual event is free, but registration is required.

Sasha Issenberg is the author of three previous books, on topics ranging from the global sushi business to medical tourism and the science of political campaigns. He has covered elections for outlets like The Boston Globe, Slate, Bloomberg, Businessweek, and The Recount. He is the Washington correspondent for Monocle, and has also written for New York magazine, The New York Times Magazine, and George, where he served as a contributing editor. He teaches in the political science department at UCLA.

This event is presented with our partner, OutFront Minnesota, whose mission is to create a state where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are free to be who they are, love who they love, and live without fear of violence, harassment or discrimination.
