Join Brazos Bookstore at the Ballroom at Bayou Place for an event with Madeleine Albright, author of Fascism.

The twentieth century was defined by the clash between democracy and Fascism, a struggle that created uncertainty about the survival of human freedom and left millions dead. Given the horrors of that experience, one might expect the world to reject the spiritual successors to Hitler and Mussolini should they arise in our era. In Fascism: A Warning, Madeleine Albright draws on her experiences as a child in war-torn Europe and her distinguished career as a diplomat to question that assumption.

Madeleine Albright served as America’s sixty-fourth secretary of state from 1997 to 2001.  Her distinguished career also includes positions at the White House, on Capitol Hill, and as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

This is a ticketed event. Doors open at 7:00pm and the reading begins at 7:30pm. This event will take place at The Ballroom at Bayou Place. There will be a cash bar.

Tickets are $17.99 plus tax to admit one person. Each individual must purchase a ticket to enter, and can do so online or over the phone. After purchase, tickets can be picked up at the store or at will call the night of the event. Ticket includes a pre-signed paperback copy of Madeleine Albright’s Fascism.

If you are unable to attend the event, you MUST pick up your book from Brazos Bookstore by February 25. We are unable to hold books and proof of purchase past the two week mark without confirmation of extenuating circumstances.
