Daniel Oppenheimer will examine Donald Trump’s implosion and rebirth in the late 1980s, when he destroyed his first marriage and his business empire nearly collapsed, as a way of considering the value of empathizing with those whose politics are divisive and extreme. Oppenheimer, author of the new book Exit Right: The People Who Left the Left and Reshaped the American Century, earned an MFA in nonfiction writing from Columbia University and is director of communications for the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health.

The event is sponsored by the Senior Fellows Honors Program of the Moody College of Communication and the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life at the University of Texas at Austin.
