Saslow headlines Northwest Passages on Monday

From staff reports

Eli Saslow’s book “Rising Out of Hatred,” published Tuesday, tells the story of Derek Black, a white nationalist who eventually left the movement.

Saslow kicked off his book tour on Friday in Portland, where he lives. His second stop is Spokane, where on Monday he’ll discuss his book with author Edward Humes as part of The Spokesman-Review’s Northwest Passages Book Club.

Publisher’s Weekly called the book a “gripping and timely examination of the “alt-right” subculture and the potential for dialogue and moral reasoning to overcome hateful dogmas.” Kirkus called it a “sobering book that deserves a wide audience among politics-watchers in an age of reaction.”

If you go: “Rising Out of Hatred,” a conversation between Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Eli Saslow and Edward Humes, 7 p.m. Monday, The Spokesman-Review, 999 W. Riverside Ave. General admission is $5; visit to get on the waiting list.
