NHIOP Bookmark Series: “The Engagement”
November 1, 2021 | NH Institute of Politics
On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that state bans on gay marriage were unconstitutional, making same-sex unions legal across the United States. But the road to that momentous decision was much longer than many know.
Sasha Issenberg joins the Institute’s executive director, Neil Levesque, for an in-depth conversation on his recent book, “The Engagement,” as part of our Bookmark Series. “The Engagement” follows a cast of characters that includes those who sought their own right to wed, those who fought to protect the traditional definition of marriage, and those who changed their minds about it.
Sasha is currently the Washington correspondent for Monocle. He covered the 2008 election as a national political reporter in the Washington bureau of The Boston Globe, the 2012 election for Slate, the 2016 election for Bloomberg Politics and Businessweek, and 2020 for The Recount. He is the author of three previous books, on topics ranging from the global sushi business to medical tourism and the science of political campaigns. He teaches in the political science department at UCLA.
Copies of the book may be purchased in advance at your local bookseller, or online at Amazon.
Free and open to the public with advanced registration.
