In conversation with Krithika Varagur
Wine reception to follow
From 2010 to 2020, more people participated in protests than at any other point in human history. Yet we are not living in more just and democratic societies as a result. In If We Burn, acclaimed journalist and author of The Jakarta Method, Vincent Bevins sets out to answer a single, vital question: How did so many mass protests lead to the opposite of what they asked for? In this groundbreaking study of an extraordinary chain of events, protesters and major actors look back on successes and defeats, offering urgent lessons for the future. Please join us in welcoming Bevins to the Greenlight stage for the book launch of If We Burn with one of the most insightful and provocative journalists working today. Wine reception to follow.
