Gene Weingarten - One Day: The Extraordinary Story of an Ordinary 24 Hours in America

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 27, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

To discover if there’s really such a thing as an “ordinary” day, Weingarten, the two-time Pulitzer-winning writer of The Washington Post’s “Below the Beltway” column, pulled a date out of a hat and then researched everything that had happened on it. Sunday, December 28, 1986, was not a day that had changed history. And yet, as Weingarten shows in this deeply researched account, it did. Lives were saved and lost. Personal dramas played out. New projects were initiated. In addition to following many resonant private stories, Weingarten traces wider social disparities and intolerance, and uncovers hints of events to come.
