What: Meet the Author. “The Age of Anxiety: McCarthyism to Terrorism”
Who: Haynes Johnson, Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist; author of five national bestsellers, including The Best of Times.
Event: For five long years in the 1950s, Senator Joseph McCarthy and his anti-Communist crusade dominated the American scene, terrifying politicians and destroying the lives of thousands of U.S. citizens. In Age of Anxiety, Johnson tells this monumental story through the lens of its relevance to our own time, for he believes that once again our civil liberties, our Constitution, and our nation are at stake as we confront the task of balancing the need for national security with that of personal liberty.
