Join us for a talk by Congressman Jamie Raskin. He'll speak about his recent book, Unthinkable, a #1 New York Times bestseller. In this searing memoir, Congressman Jamie Raskin tells the story of the forty-five days at the start of 2021 that permanently changed his life—and his family's—as he confronted the painful loss of his son to suicide, lived through the violent insurrection in our nation's Capitol, and led the impeachment effort to hold President Trump accountable for inciting the political violence.

Congressman Jamie Raskin represents Maryland’s 8th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, which includes Montgomery, Carroll, and Frederick Counties. Congressman Raskin was sworn into his third Term at the start of the 117th Congress on January 3, 2021.
