If you’re still wondering what the hell happened in November 2016, know that you’re not alone. Journalist Harmon Leon is also pondering this question. ForMeet the Deplorables: Infiltrating Trump America, he took a gonzo-style approach, going behind enemy lines undercover into Trump country. The book, created in collaboration with political cartoonist Ted Rall, takes a satirical, cutthroat look at some of the most horrific segments of conservative areas of the country. That includes researching purity ring ceremonies, gun store weddings, gay conversion therapy, and hate groups. This Saturday, Harmon will pay a visit to Dead Media as part of the Riot Act Reading Series, where he’ll give a multimedia presentation and will be joined by local writers. He’ll also be stopping by Magers & Quinn the day before. 7 p.m. Free. Friday at Magers & Quinn Booksellers (3038 Hennepin Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612-822-4611); Saturday at Dead Media (3330 E. 25th St., Minneapolis; 612-222-1655).
