Today is First Thursday in downtown Boise, and there's a particularly interesting presentation scheduled: Greg Hahn, host of Idaho Public TV's “Idaho Reports,” will give a multimedia presentation at 5:30 p.m. in the Rose Room entitled, “The Left, the Right, Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party.” It's part of the Fettuccine Forum series, produced by the Boise City Department of Arts & History in conjunction with Boise State University; an array of sponsors include the Idaho Humanities Council.
“A shrinking middle class, years of economic uncertainty and an increasing turn to the politics of resentment have helped push people across the country to the ideological extremes - but what does that mean for the average Idahoan?” the announcement of the program says. “Maybe more than you realize. Idaho Public Television's Greg Hahn uses video, audio, images and close to two decades of experience as a political journalist to explore how we got here and what could happen next.”
Doors open at 5 p.m. for the session; beverages will be sold by Jo's Traveling Bar. The Rose Room is located at 718 W. Idaho St.
