Take a free lesson in the history of the 20th century when Yale professor and public intellectual Timothy Snyder comes to town. Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur and the Toledo Lucas County Public Library have teamed up to present Open Book, a discussion on Snyder’s latest work, On Tyranny: 20 Lessons From the 20th Century. Offering a frightening parallel between the U.S. now and Europe in the last century, On Tyranny suggests that if we don’t change our ways, we are doomed to repeat the worst elements of history. Kaptur will introduce the professor who has authored two other historical books, both about Hitler and the Holocaust. A book sale and signing will follow the presentation. 4pm. Friday, May 12.
