About The Event

Dick Lehr will discuss his new book, set in Kansas in 2016, where a small group of far-right nationalists plotted to bomb Somali refugees in Garden City, Kansas. Through this story, he will discuss how far-right media, Facebook, and the internet created an echo chamber that served to inspire the bomb plotters with paranoid rage and misinformation.

The book is titled, WHITE HOT HATE: A True Story of Domestic Terrorism in America’s Heartland.

First Church member Dick Lehr is a professor of journalism at Boston University, and the author of seven award-winning works of nonfiction and fiction. For more information:
