Left Book Club – Authentocrats with Joe Kennedy

3 December @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We’re very excited to host Joe Kennedy at our next LBC meeting to discuss his book, Authentocrats: Culture, Politics and the New Seriousness. Joe’s book is a brilliant and incisive read that provides a useful way of thinking about debates on Brexit, nationalism and what’s really going on when politicians and pundits refer to the ‘traditional’ working class.

Joe will briefly discuss his book before facilitating an open discussion on many of its themes. Participation in the conversation is very much encouraged!

Please email office@leftbookclub.com if you have any questions.

Joe Kennedy is from the north-east of England and teaches English and Cultural Studies on the University of Gothenburg’s programme at the University of Sussex in Brighton. He writes on literature, critical and cultural theory, politics, music and sport for a range of publications.

The Left Book Club is a subscription book club for everyone interested in left politics. Relaunched along the lines of Victor Gollancz’s ground-breaking organisation active in the 1930s, the LBC seeks to popularise ideas from the left across the UK and abroad.
