Join the Bangor League for a discussion of Seek and Hide: The Tangled History of the Right to Privacy by Amy Gajda.

In the midst of battles to keep Big Tech from exploiting personal data and journalists from revealing information politicians want kept quiet, Tulane law professor Gadja reminds us that the standoff between the individual's right to privacy and the public's right to know has been around for a long time. Until the advent of investigative reporting in the sixties, she argues, the tendency was to seek protection for the rich from journalistic scourgings; here she argues for a necessary balance between personal and public need.

The book group meets at Seasons restaurant in Bangor. If you would like to join by Zoom, please email Lane at lane@lwvme.org for more info.
