You’re More Powerful Than You Think: A book talk with Eric Liu

Location: The Stage

6:00pm - 8:30pm EDT

In the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, our country has seen an overwhelming eruption of citizen activism. Whether driven by anger, fear, or excitement, Americans everywhere are feeling the urge to get involved and take action. But most people don’t know the best ways to harness their energies, and to many, it seems impossible to make a real impact. Yet, Eric Liu would argue that YOU ARE more powerful than you think.

Join Civic Hall and Eric Liu for the release of his new book, You’re More Powerful Than You Think. Eric will discuss the core laws of power and show that every one of us can upend the usual rules of engagement around power, revamp the narrative surrounding an issue, and effectively deploy our networks and influence to harness our power and use it most effectively.

Doors open at 6pm and program will begin at 6:30pm.
Copies of You’re More Powerful Than You Think will be available for purchase.


Eric Liu is the founder and CEO of Citizen University and executive director of the Aspen Institute Citizenship and American Identity Program. His TED Talks on citizen power and voting have over 2 million views, and he is the author of several books, including A Chinaman’s Chance and The Gardens of Democracy (coauthored with Nick Hanauer). Liu served as a White House speechwriter and policy adviser for President Bill Clinton. He is a regular columnist for CNN.com and a correspondent for TheAtlantic.com.
