Author Event: Sasha Abramsky's
JUMPING AT SHADOWS
From terrorist attacks to illegal immigrants to the Zika virus, Sasha Abramsky, a renowned journalist, sets out to uncover what things frighten us most; why our fears are in many cases misplaced; how this hysteria is often based on issues of race, segregation, class, and inequality; and how we can refuse to let it define us.

In Jumping at Shadows, Sasha Abramsky sets his sights on America’s most dangerous epidemic: irrational fear. Abramsky delivers an eye-opening analysis of our misconceptions about risk and threats, and how our brains interpret them, both at a neurological level and at a conscious one. What emerges is a journey through a political and cultural landscape that is defined by our fears—fears that are often misplaced. Be a part of this fascinating conversation, on Wednesday night at Buena Vista.


THURSDAY
