New York NY

The world got a glimpse of the story U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse tells in his urgent and unsettling new book, The Scheme, when the Senator’s presentation at the Amy Coney Barrett hearings went viral. Now, Whitehouse endeavors to pull back the curtain on what he sees as a powerful and hidden apparatus designed to degrade American democracy and control the courts. In the inaugural Stepanski Family Lecture at Roosevelt House—a series that will feature “Distinguished Advocates for Democracy”—the Rhode Island lawmaker will be in conversation with CNN senior analyst and best-selling author John Avlon.
