Manchester , N.H. Author of Hope Unraveled and civic innovator , Richard Harwood will speak at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College on Wednesday, March 22, at 7:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

In conversations spanning the past 15 years throughout dozens of communities across America, Richard Harwood, president and founder of The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation, has discovered a nation struggling with growing consumerism, distorted realities, and false divisions that cut across cultural, political, and media landscapes. The consequences of all this is that people can no longer see or hear themselves reflected in politics and public life—in fact, they feel as though their realities are routinely distorted.

Hope Unraveled reveals a reality that transcends the purported red-blue divide and lays out an alternate path for politics and public life for all Americans.
