      Anthony McCann in Conversation With Leah Sottile

      In 2016, a group of armed, divinely inspired right-wing protestors led by Ammon Bundy occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the high desert of eastern Oregon. Encamped in the shadowlands of the republic, insisting that the federal government had no right to own public land, the occupiers were seen by a divided country as either dangerous extremists dressed up as cowboys, or as heroes insisting on restoring the rule of the Constitution. From the occupation’s beginnings, to the trials of the occupiers in federal court and their tumultuous aftermaths, Anthony McCann’s Shadowlands (Bloomsbury) is a clarifying, exhilarating story of a nation facing an uncertain future and a murky past in a time of great collective reckoning. Gathering into its vortex the realities of social media technology, history, religion, race, and the environment, McCann offers us a combination of beautiful writing and high-stakes analysis of our current cultural and political moment. McCann will be joined in conversation by Leah Sottile, journalist and host of the Bundyville podcast.
