Brandt Ayers in Conversation with Randy Hammer

1 Aug 2013

On Thursday, August 1, 7pm at Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, please join us for an onstage interview by Asheville Citizen-Times president and publisher Randy Hammer with newspaperman Brandt Ayers. They will discuss Ayers’ new memoir, "In Love with Defeat: The Making of a Southern Liberal," which takes Ayers from the segregated Old South to a newly minted civilization, the New South, in which he had a leadership role. “Clear eyed and perceptive, grounded in community and global outlook, Brandt Ayers has spent a brave lifetime of commentary calling his beloved South to redemption.” – Hodding Carter III, Prof. of Leadership & Public Policy, UNC-Chapel Hill

This event is free and open to the public.
