Sharlet on Christian fundamentalists at Miller Center
When you mentioned "The Family" it used to mean something like the Sapranos, but for author Jeff Sharlet it means a group of political power wielding Christian fundamentalist, and some members of Congress, who are trying to change America. Join Sharlet at the Miller Center on October 22 at 11am to discuss his book, The Family: the Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power.
A contributing editor for Harper's and Rolling Stone, he co-founded an online literary magazine, KillingTheBuddha.com, in 2000. This led to a travelogue based on the year Sharlet and co-author Peter Manseau spent exploring the margins of faith in America. Sharlet has also served as an associate research scholar at New York University's Center for Religion and Media, and he joined the Dartmouth College faculty this year. A book signing will follow his Forum.
