On Tuesday, March 23, 2021, join Talia Lavin discuss her book Culture Warlords with San Mateo County Libraries.
Infiltrating the complex online culture of hate, Talia Lavin studied the inner workings of how white supremacy grows online and revealed the extremists hiding in plain sight in her gripping book CULTURE WARLORDS: My Journey Into the Dark Web of White Supremacy. Assuming a range of identities, from a blonde Nazi babe to a violent Aryan femme fatale, Talia compiled a shocking litany of stories to combine with in-depth research. CULTURE WARLORDS turns the lens of anti-Semitism, racism, and white power back on itself in an attempt to dismantle and decimate the online hate movement from within. This program is for adults.

Praise for Culture Warlords
Culture Warlords is the Editor’s Choice for the New York Times Book Review and listed as a must-read by Time Magazine, Kirkus, NY Times, and USA Today.
[A] skillful memoir… [with] highly useful insights… Righteous indignation meets techie magic to shine light on one of America’s most malignant warts. — Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
Lavin takes investigative journalism to the next level… This is a heavy read, but an important one. — Library Journal
In Culture Warlords, Talia Lavin capably leads readers through chilly tunnels of loathing, burrowing deep into dens of violent racism, anti-Semitism, and misogyny. She describes communities of hate and how they’re growing with precision, seriousness, and humor. Even as she takes on multiple identities, readers will find in her a steady and often lyrical guide: transparent about her fears, fury, and ever-changing sense of self. Culture Warlords is surely brutal and urgent; it is also unexpectedly delicate. — Rebecca Traister, author of All the Single Ladies, Good and Mad
As someone who has gone undercover and waded through the dark trenches of white supremacy, I know firsthand how jarring it can be to find yourself in the belly of the beast-and the courage it takes to dig your way to the other side. Culture Warlords is a searingly original and breathtaking feat of fearless journalism, and it is required reading for anyone who seeks to understand the nefarious context for the world we live in today. — Ron Stallworth, author of Black Klansman
