Laura Flanders’ political voice is heard across the nation, from her weekly radio program, RadioNation, to her television show, GRITtv.

Since 1997 Flanders has worked in investigative journalism, writing novels about women in the Bush administration and minorities in journalism. In times of political change, her approach to sifting through political chatter and gathering what is important to activists, newsmakers, and artists has kept her lefty fan base growing.

On Tuesday, join Flanders and The Denver Forum for lunch and a discussion about her latest book, Blue Grit: Making Impossible, Improbable, and Inspirational Change in America.

Tue, May 5, noon
