Last week, Gov. Greg Abbott called the Texas Legislature back to Austin for a special session on the heels of one of the wilder legislative sessions in recent memory. Lawrence Wright joins us for a conversation about the current state of Texas politics – and how what happens here often is a preview of things to come nationally. His story “The Future Is Texas” appears in The New Yorker. Wright speaks tonight at the Dallas Museum of Art as part of Arts & Letters Live! in partnership with the World Affairs Council of Dallas-Fort Worth.
