Enduring Legacies of American Colonialism

Saturday, March 19 from 10:00am to 11:00am

Authors Jonathan M. Katz and Albert Samaha will discuss their new books.

This in-person event is a part of the 2022 Virginia Festival of the Book. Please note that this event will take place off-site at the Irving Theater in the CODE Building (225 W. Water St.). 

Authors Jonathan M. Katz (Gangsters of Capitalism) and Albert Samaha (Concepcion) will discuss their new books, which question and explore the enduring legacies of war, conquest, and imperialism through the lenses of real, individual lives. Written with an incisive eye to the past and a critical examination of the resultant history, these books portray the assumptions, promises, and fallout of twentieth-century international political landscapes. This event will be moderated by Jamelle Bouie.

As part of the 2022 Virginia Festival of the Book, this in-person event is free to attend and open to the public. In response to Covid-19, many venues have limited capacity. Early arrival is strongly encouraged. For more information about the specific Covid-19 guidelines for this venue, visit vabook.org.
