Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome celebrated author, critic, and lecturer ADAM GOPNIK for a one-man show based on his latest book, "A Thousand Small Sanities: The Moral Adventures of Liberalism." On election night 2016, Adam Gopnik tried--and failed--to reinspire his daughter Olivia with faith in liberal humanism during a long walk around their neighborhood. In this one-hour performance, Gopnik tries to make up for his failure by taking her again, in imagination, on a long tour among the great and sometimes improbable people and places of the liberal vision.
