We are excited to announce the launch of Bookshop's year-long programming effort called 2020 Vision. Our focus will be to look back at where we've been (as a country), shine a light on our current state of affairs, and look ahead to where we want to go in 2020 and beyond.
We hope you will join us in this campaign of reading recommendations, author events, and community partnerships, as we look at the world with hindsight, clarity and vision.
Fascism: A Warning
February 5, 2019
We were thrilled and honored to launch our 2020 Vision campaign with an evening with Madeleine Albright, the United States' first female Secretary of State, who spoke about her book, Fascism: A Warning, a personal and urgent examination of fascism in the twentieth century and how its legacy shapes today’s world. Secretary Albright was in conversation with UCSC alumna and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Martha Mendoza. Over 2,800 people attended our event at Kaiser Permanente Arena, which was cosponsored by The Humanities Institute at UC Santa Cruz and Temple Beth El. This was the largest event in Bookshop's 52-year history! See the Santa Cruz Sentinel article here.
