Item Description

Enjoy a group discussion with author Daniel Okrent about his latest book, The Guarded Gate: Bigotry, Eugenics, and the Law That Kept Two Generations of Jews, Italians, and Other European Immigrants Out of America and learn more about the three-decade campaign that made xenophobia respectable and enshrined in federal law for more than 40 years. This meeting will be mutually scheduled in New York, on Cape Cod, or Chicago, subject to the author's schedule, or via Skype.
Daniel Okrent is the prize-winning author of six books. Before The Guarded Gate, he published Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition (2011), which was cited by the American Historical Association as the year’s best book on American history. Great Fortune: The Epic of Rockefeller Center was a finalist for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize in history. Among his many jobs in publishing, he was corporate editor-at-large at Time Inc., and was the first public editor of the New York Times.
