It would be nice if gerrymandering were a quirk of American history instead of a current crisis, but here we are, watching candidates drop out after Gov. Whine DeSantis got his way on the latest version of Florida’s district map (which a judge has ruled unconstitutional).

If you’re wondering how we got to this moment, author Nick Seabrook will be discussing his new book, "One Person, One Vote: A Surprising History of Gerrymandering in America," at Tombolo Books on Thursday, July 7 at 7 p.m.

Joining Seabrook—Professor in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at the University of North Florida—for this unfortunately timely discussion will be Florida Representative Ben Diamond, a member of the Florida House Democratic Caucus who suspended his campaign for Congress when the DeSantis map drew him out of Florida’s 13th Congressional District.
The event is free, but RSVPs are encouraged on the Tombolo Books website.
