World-renowned for her work on justice and citizenship in both ancient Athens and modern America, Danielle Allen offers another nuanced point of view of U.S. democracy with the release of her latest book Our Declaration. Author of other thought-provoking texts such as It's Up to Obama and Why Plato Wrote, the political philosopher boldly poses the idea that individual liberty and political equality exist in tandem within the Declaration -- which makes it a powerful driving force that can still impact today's society. Join Allen -- a 2015 winner of the Chicago Tribune's Heartland Award for Nonfiction -- at Chicago's UIC Forum as she leads an in-depth discussion on her latest novel and challenges the conventional wisdoms that surround the nation's founding text.
