The House of Truth Professor Brad Snyder talked about his book, The House of Truth: A Washington Political Salon and the Foundations of American Liberalism, about a group of Washington professionals interested in promoting progressive politics that regularly met in a row house in the city’s Dupont Circle Neighborhood in the early 20th century.
