This Will not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future

The Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in partnership with the Political Animals Club will be hosting author of the newly released book, This Will not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future, Jonathan Martin at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater, 100 River Market Avenue, on June 6 at 6 p.m.

“This Will Not Pass” is considered a definitive account of the 2020 election penned by two New York Times reporters. Through hundreds of interviews and never-before-seen documents, Martin and co-author Alexander Burns shed light on a wide variety of factors throughout the election as well as the first year of the Biden administration. At its core, the book poses a vital question: Can American democracy, as we know it, ever work again?

Jonathan Martin is a national political correspondent for The New York Times and a political analyst for CNN. He joined the Times in 2013 after working as a senior political writer for POLITICO. His work has been featured in The New Republic, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal, among others. A native of Arlington, Virginia, Martin is a graduate of Hampden-Sydney College.

Doors open at 5 p.m. and the program begins at 6. Beer, wine, and concessions will be available. The event is free but registration is required; seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
