This groundbreaking new book club series is brought to you by the AFT, Share My Lesson and the Albert Shanker Institute. Tune in each month for an evening of inspiration, intellect and innovation—where the power of words takes center stage! Each month you will hear a fusion of words and wisdom as influential authors, scholars and activists engage in a riveting dialogue that promises to ignite your passion for literature and social change. 

Join us for our March AFT Book Club session featuring AFT President Randi Weingarten and renowned author Ruth Ben-Ghiat who will discuss her book Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present. Engage with Weingarten and Ben-Ghiat as they explore the themes of power, personality and politics that define the era of strongmen and authoritarian leaders throughout history. Gain insights into the past and present, to better understand how history can inform our future. This is a must-attend event for anyone interested in history, politics and the lessons we can learn from the past.
