Author Visit and Book Talk with Evan Nierman: The Cancel Culture Curse Wednesday, September 27 at 6:00 p.m.
In The Cancel Culture Curse: From Rage to Redemption in a World Gone Mad, a new book from global crisis manager Evan Nierman and his colleague Mark Sachs expose the harmful practice of cancel culture and provide practical resources for you or those you know to protect yourselves from cancel culture. If you think that cancel culture affects only large corporations or A-list celebrities then think again. In fact, it is the average person who is most at risk. Every single human being that walks the planet makes mistakes and is therefore in danger of being struck down by cancel culture. Sponsored by the Parkland Friends of the Library.
