August 9th Luncheon – Extremism Has Gone Mainstream

Claire Conner – Author of Wrapped in the Flag

Note that this month’s luncheon will be held at Marina Jack’s.

Claire ConnerJoin fellow Democrats as we welcome Claire Conner, award winning author and speaker to our Saturday, August 9th luncheon.

Claire will connect the dots from old right-wing radicals to today’s extremists and shed light on their actual plans.

Claire Conner’s father was a national spokesperson for the John Birch Society (JBS) for more than thirty years and her mother was a staunch follower. Wrapped in the Flag is the inside story of the JBS told by the daughter of one of the group’s founding members.

Claire’s topic at the luncheon will be “Extremism Has Gone Mainstream”. She will expose the plans of rich anti-government libertarians, religious zealots, and old John Birchers to take America back…back 100 years. Her book will be available for purchase at the luncheon.
