Speaker: Journalist and author Michelle Goldberg

Description:
Michelle Goldberg is a journalist and author based in Brooklyn. Her first book, the New York Times bestseller "Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism," explored the ascendant politico-religious fundamentalism dominating the Republican Party and, at the time, the Bush administration. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it “an impressive piece of lucid journalism…carefully researched and riveting.” After Kingdom Coming came out, Goldberg spent two years traveling the world to research "The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power and the Future of the World," a book about the globalization of battles over women's rights. Goldberg is a columnist for The Daily Beast and for Tablet, and her work has appeared in The Nation, The New Republic, Glamour, Newsweek, The Guardian (UK) and many other publications. Her third book, about the world-traveling adventuress, actress and yoga evangelist Indra Devi, will be published by Knopf in 2013.
