Join the University of Michigan’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and Wallace House Center for Journalists for its Fall 2023 Democracy in Crisis event. The event will feature a conversation with Jake Tapper, CNN anchor and chief Washington D.C. correspondent, and Lynette Clemetson, Director of Wallace House Center for Journalists.
Their wide-ranging discussion will cover the state of democracy and the role and responsibility of the press in a democratic society, as well as how Tapper’s experience of being an anchor and correspondent informs his craft of writing fiction. Tapper’s newly released book, “All the Demons Are Here,” will also be available for purchase at the event. The author will stay for a short book signing after the program.
