For a provocative and entertaining evening with

Dr. George Lakoff

George Lakoff is one of the most recognized thinkers and teachers on language and public discourse today. His popular 2004 book, Don’t Think of an Elephant, helped progressive Americans understand how to avoid common language traps when talking about our civic enterprise. His new work, Thinking Points, is available in bookstores and on-line through the Rockridge Institute, where Dr. Lakoff serves as senior fellow. It has been called “an essential tool kit for anyone who wants to participate in shaping an America that serves the common good,” and offers a “bold and systematic explanation of how conservatives think and use language – and how progressives can fight back with their own values and communicate their vision of a better America.”
