The Midtown Scholar Bookstore is honored to welcome Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anne Applebaum to Harrisburg for a conversation and signing on her new book, Autocracy, Inc: The Dictators Who Want to Run the World. Applebaum will be in conversation with journalist Peter Pomerantsev.

In this urgent treatise— an alarming account of how autocracies work together to undermine the democratic world—Anne Applebaum calls for the democracies to fundamentally reorient their policies to fight a new kind of threat.

Anne Applebaum is a staff writer for The Atlantic and a Senior Fellow of the Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University. Her previous books include Iron Curtain, winner of the Cundill Prize and a finalist for the National Book Award, and Gulag, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction and a finalist for three other major prizes. She lives in Poland with her husband, Radek Sikorski, a Polish politician, and their two children.

This is a ticketed event. Every ticket includes a copy of the book and up to two general admission seats. Doors will open at 6:00 pm, and the event will begin at 7:00 pm. Seating is general admission; first come, first served. Book signing to follow presentation.
