AUTHOR OF NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER THE DIVIDE

MATT TAIBBI is the author of The Divide, the “impossible to put down” (NYT) book that uncovers America’s wealth gap. He’s also one of the most informed—and funniest—chroniclers of Trump and the 2016 election. In talks, Taibbi paints an alarming portrait of American life—where our basic rights are now determined by our wealth or poverty—and provides a way forward against this urgent crisis.
