Community Conversation and Book Reading with Elizabeth Minnich

Wednesday, September 6, 7:00 pm at Kellogg-Hubbard Library, Montpelier

The Barre Historical Society and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library are co-sponsoring a discussion and book reading led by Dr. Elizabeth Minnich.

Dr. Minnich is a professor of moral philosophy at Queens University and a Senior Scholar at the Association of American Colleges and Universities. She served as philosopher Hannah Arendt’s teaching assistant and wrote her doctoral dissertation on John Dewey.

Book Cover: The Evil of BanalityIn her recent book The Evil of Banality: The Life and Death Importance of Thinking, Minnich reverses Arendt’s controversial concept, “the banality of evil,” and draws on literature, psychology, economics, journalism, and pop culture to explore how people both perpetrate and resist genocide and other “extensive” evils.

This discussion is free and open to the public. No reservation is required.
