On Thursday, May 26th, the Martin Center will host a webinar with its director of editorial content, George Leef, to discuss his first novel, The Awakening of Jennifer Van Arsdale. A Q&A session for attendees will follow the presentation.
The novel’s setting is the American political scene in the near future. The country has been under complete “progressive” domination for more than eight years and the erosion of freedom has accelerated. Free speech is besieged, the rule of law is but a memory, and the education system is far more concerned with correct ideology than with knowledge and skills.
The Awakening of Jennifer Van Arsdale contains much of Leef’s thinking about what has gone wrong with education in the U.S., as well as the roots of our economic and social ills.
