The Big Read Book Club - Week 2: Donald Trump – Airhead?

This summer Kingston University wants to keep the Kingston community connected, from new students to alumni and everyone in between. We will be hosting our first-ever series of virtual Book Club meetings, centred around the 2020 Big Read Airhead, written by Newsnight host Emily Maitlis. You'll get to see the chapters of Airhead through the eyes of KU experts in weekly virtual talks from 8 July to 16 September 2020 - a chance you won't want to miss.

This week's talk will be focusing on the chapters titled Donald Trump and Miss USA (p.9); Two days with President Clinton (p.25); Anthony Scaramucci on the White House Lawn (p.303). 

We will be considering US politics right now, and what can be learned from interviews Emily has carried out in the past. This is particularly timely as she will be reporting on the forthcoming US presidential election later on this year. Dr Pete Finn will dive into the fascinating context and consequences of the turbulent landscape that is contemporary American politics.

Please note, booking closes at 3pm the day before the event.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
