For our first book, we’ll be reading The Swing Vote, The Untapped Power of Independents, written by journalist Linda Killian who I recently had the pleasure of interviewing at a Politics for the People in Brooklyn, NY. Here’s an audio clip of our conversation (Killian P4P – 1).
Linda spent 2 years researching us — independent voters — and has written a thought provoking book. She interviewed many independents in the IndependentVoting.org network including: President, Jackie Salit (whose own book “Independent Rising” is due out in July), Counsel Harry Kresky, Julia Pfaff from the Virginia Independent Voters Association, Joelle Riddle and Kathleen Curry of Colorado and more.
Here is how the book club works:
- Get your copy of the book. (Amazon / Barnes and Nobel)
- Start reading.
- I post reviews, audio clips, interviews and lots of thought-provoking questions over the next several weeks.
- Then, on Sunday, February 26th at 7 pm, call in for our national discussion of the book.
If you have thoughts as you are reading, please leave a comment on the blog.
And, if you want to suggest a book to be a Politics for the People selection, also leave a comment.
