Jill Lepore – Diese Wahrheiten

History of the United States of America

The award-winning author and historian Jill Lepore is a professor at Harvard University and writes for The New Yorker. Her book These Truths was on American bestseller lists for weeks and questioned “truths” of the history of the United States, from the first colonial assemblies to the Internet polls of the present day. “A nation born at odds with itself will forever fight for the meaning of its history.” Jill Lepore has written the book of the moment to help us understand our present times. Elisabeth Bronfen will talk to the author about her portrait of the USA and her plea for liberal America.
