The Nation 150th Anniversary Speaker Series: John Nichols

Sep 24, 2015, 7:00 pm

John Nichols will discuss his work at the Salt Lake City Public Library as part of The Nation 150 the Anniversary Speaker Series.

2015 marks the 150th anniversary of The Nation, the oldest weekly magazine in the country. Since its founding in 1865, The Nation has been a home for writers instigating, reporting on, and arguing about struggles for social and economic justice.

In honor of The Nation’s 150th anniversary, join The City Library for a series of events that celebrate the magazine’s legacy of cultural commentary, political analysis, and forward-thinking reporting. Throughout the series, we’ll feature a variety of contemporary voices from the magazine and cover topics that range from politics, the environment, social justice, and more.

John Nichols writes about politics for The Nation as its Washington correspondent. He is a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times and is the associate editor of the Capital Times, New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and dozens of other newspapers. John is the author of many books, including, most recently, Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex Is Destroying America (co-authored with Robert W. McChesney). He is a frequent guest on radio and television programs as a commentator on politics and media issues. Follow him on Twitter @nicholsuprising.
