‘Fault Lines in the Constitution’ Opportunity from Wyoming Humanities

Mar 7, 2023

Book coverWyoming Humanities has announced a unique programming opportunity for communities, libraries, and non-profit organizations across the state.

Fault Lines in the Constitution is a book written by Cynthia and Sanford Levinson that explores the historic document:

“Each chapter in this timely and thoughtful exploration of the Constitution’s creation begins with a story—all but one of them true—that connects directly back to a section of the document that forms the basis of our society and government. From the award-winning team, Cynthia Levinson, children’s book author, and Sanford Levinson, constitutional law scholar, Fault Lines in the Constitution will encourage exploration and discussion from young and old readers alike.”

 

Authors will host a lively discussion, debate, and conversation expanding on the themes found in their book and the U.S. Constitution on Tuesday, May 16th at 6:30pm in Jackson, Wyoming. Wyoming Humanities wants to bring this exciting event to your community in real time via livestream.
