WEB UPDATE: Gore to visit Lisner May 29

Posted Friday May 4, 4:33 p.m.

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore will speak about his new book at Lisner Auditorium May 29.

The bookstore Politics and Prose will co-host Gore at the 21st Street auditorium. Gore will sign his book, “The Assault on Reason,” after the lecture, according to a news release.

On March 21, Gore spoke at the Law School’s “The Future of Environmental Protection” conference, an event that was not open to the public or media.

“The Assault on Reason” is a “visionary analysis of how the politics of fear, secrecy, cronyism, and blind faith has combined with the degradation of the public sphere to create an environment dangerously hostile to reason,” according to a book summary.

According to a March 22 story in Publishers Weekly, Gore will visit 10 to 12 cities including Washington, New York and San Francisco to promote his book this month.

All tickets can be purchased by calling Politics and Prose at (202) 364-1919.
