On Tyranny – An Evening with Timothy Snyder and Nora Krug
In 2017, historian Timothy Snyder compiled a pocket-sized guide to resisting tyranny. A notable departure from his longer monograph studies, On Tyranny, took the lessons of the 20th century and instructed the reader on specific actions they could take to protect democracy.
Now, Nora Krug, a German-American author and illustrator, has partnered with Snyder to produce a new edition of On Tyranny. This work is a mixture of graphic memoir, collage-style scrapbook and historical narrative. Its creative format will reach new audience, again, reminding us of how important our personal roles are in defending our institutions of democracy.
