Bitter divisions along class, cultural, geographic, racial, religious, and political lines have grown so fast and so deep that America’s founding fathers’ vision of “a more perfect union” seems almost risible. New York Times op-ed columnist David Brooks has spent the past year exploring how local communities have sought to—and succeeded in—building bridges across divides. Join him for a crucial conversation about what’s working, what’s not, whether there’s cause for optimism, and his ideas for finding personal fulfillment in a fractured world. His new book is The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life.
