    Everyone is invited to join the Social Wave Book Club as we discuss Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free by Charles P. Pierce.

     

    In the midst of a career-long quest to separate the smart from the pap, journalist Charles Pierce had a defining moment at the Creation Museum in Kentucky, where he observed a dinosaur…wearing a saddle.  With his razor-sharp wit and erudite reasoning, Pierce delivers a gut-wrenching, side-splitting lament about the glorification of ignorance in the United States.  A staff writer for the Boston Globe Magazine, Pierce is a contributing writer for Esquire and a frequent contributor to American Prospect and Slate.
