Online Speakeasy: Dispatches from the Wrong Side of History

Monday 3rd June, 7.30pm 

On Zoom.

Join FSU General Secretary Toby Young in conversation with award-winning US writer Nellie Bowles as they discuss her new book, Morning After the Revolution: Dispatches from the Wrong Side of History. 

In the book, Bowles takes readers inside the world of the elite woke to paint a devastating portrait of a cultural ideology gone awry. With irreverent accounts of attending Robin DiAngelo’s multi-day course on ‘The Toxic Trends of Whiteness,’ meeting the social justice activists who run ‘Abolitionist Entertainment, LLC,’ and navigating the increasingly deranged world of the New York Times, she deftly exposes the more comic excesses of wealthy progressives. Reporting from the tent cities of San Francisco and visiting Portland streets ravaged by violence, she reveals the tragic consequences of their hypocrisy. 

Nellie Bowles is a writer living in Los Angeles. Previously, she was a correspondent at the New York Times where, as part of a team, she won the Gerald Loeb Award in the investigative category and the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Journalism Award. Now she is working with her wife to build The Free Press, a new media company. 

FSU members can join the event live, free of charge, using the link provided in member emails. If you’re not a member, JOIN TODAY to gain free access to all online events.
