EDS at Union has selected The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism by Katherine Stewart as our Fall 2022 Community Read. In this revelatory investigation of the Religious Right’s rise to political power, Stewart demands that Christian nationalism be taken seriously as a significant threat to the American republic and our democratic freedoms. Please join us on Tuesday, October 4 at 6:00 pm ET, as we welcome Katherine Stewart for the 2022 Community Read Lecture and Interview. An RSVP is required for this virtual event. Union students are invited to attend in person.
Following a lecture by Stewart, she will be joined in conversation with Dean Kelly Brown Douglas, and available for an audience Q&A. Join us in reading The Power Worshipers by purchasing a copy or borrowing one from your local library.
