Joe Crespino will be here to discuss and sign his book, "Strom Thurmond's America," where he examines the political career of South Carolina's longest serving senator and how Thurmond, a Democrat until switching parties in 1964, helped shape modern conservatism and sparked the realignment of Southern and national politics.

 

Crespino is an associate professor of history at Emory University who specializes in U.S. 20th century history, the American South, post-World War II America, and the history and memory of the modern civil rights movement.
