Thomas Frank On How The Democratic Party Has Failed

Many remember the name Thomas Frank for his book, What's the Matter With Kansas, in which he details the rise of conservatism in the middle of the country. Now, he has his eye on Democrats' failures in his latest book, Listen Liberal.  

Thomas Frank will speak at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 24, at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library. For tickets and information, visit rainydaybooks.com.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region.
