Civil rights activist DeRay Mckesson (pictured) will join bestselling author Dan Pfeiffer on stage for a ticketed event on Feb. 21 at the sprawling independent bookshop.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Dan Pfeiffer and DeRay Mckesson to Harrisburg for what’s sure to be a fascinating conversation on the upcoming election,” said Alex Brubaker, manager of Midtown Scholar.
Mckesson is host of “Pod Save the People,” a top-rated podcast, and has been a leader in the Black Lives Matter movement. Pfeiffer is the co-host of another top podcast, “Pod Save America,” and author of the new book, “Un-Trumping America: A Plan to Make America a Democracy Again.”
Mckesson will interview Pfeiffer, leading the conversation about his book as they also share their thoughts about the coming election. A book-signing will follow the discussion.
The ticketed event requires attendees to purchase “Un-Trumping America,” which costs $30.
“‘Pod Save America’ and ‘Pod Save the People’ are two enormously popular podcasts in today’s political media culture, so I can’t wait to hear what they have to say in Harrisburg,” Brubaker said.
Dan Pfeiffer and DeRay Mckesson will appear on Feb. 21, starting at 7 p.m., at Midtown Scholar Bookstore, 1302 N. 3rd St., Harrisburg. For more information, visit www.midtownscholar.com. Ticket information is available at www.midtownscholar.com/dan-pfeiffer/event-ticket-and-book.
