ONLINE: A Revolutionary Moment: The Paris Commune – a discussion with author Carolyn J. Eichner

May 5, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

ONLINE: Join PO Box in discussion with author of The Paris Commune: A Brief History, Carolyn J. Eichner.
We’ll discuss the 72 days of the Commune, which stands as a critical and pivotal moment in nineteenth-century history, a crucible allowing glimpses of alternate possibilities. Upending hierarchies of class, religion, and gender, the Commune is a touchstone for the subsequent century-and-a-half of revolutionary and radical social movements. What inspiration and lessons can we draw from it for our current moment?
The book is great and 108 pages, so grab a copy and read before the event if you can!
