Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome HEATHER GAUTNEY--Bernie Sanders campaign advisor and Fordham University associate professor--for a discussion of her latest book, "Crashing the Party: From the Bernie Sanders Campaign to a Progressive Movement." She will be joined by Massachusetts State Representative MIKE CONNOLLY. Senator Bernie Sanders shocked the political establishment by winning 13 million votes and a majority of young voters in the 2016 Democratic primary. He emerged from the contest against Hillary Clinton as the most popular politician in the US, despite being a 75-year-old self-professed "democratic socialist." What lessons can be drawn from this surprising but, in the end, losing campaign?
