Win at all costs. The end justifies the means. Scandal. Blackmail. A demagogue for a leader. Good men seduced down the path of corruption. This is the political world explored in Warren’s fictionalized account of Huey Long’s Louisiana. What is it that makes the dark side of politics and power so seductive? What happens to good men when they make one moral compromise after another to support a political leader? Curious? Come and join us for four fascinating evenings exploring politics and prose through the lens of one of the most provocative political novels in American literature.
