On Friday 7 October from 12pm-1.30pm at Portcullis House, Catherine West MP will be in conversation with acclaimed author Thomas Frank.
Thomas Frank is the author of Pity the Billionaire, The Wrecking Crew, and What's the Matter with Kansas? and a former columnist for The Wall Street Journal and Harper's.
Catherine West is Shadow Foreign and Commonwealth Minister and Member of Parliament for Hornsey and Wood Green.
Thomas and Catherine will be discussing the findings of Thomas' recent book Listen Liberal, a scathing look at the standard-bearers of liberal politics — a book that asks: what's the matter with Democrats?
Catherine and Thomas will also be reviewing whether there are lessons to be learnt in terms of the left of UK politics and the Labour Party in particular.
