About Politics for the People
Politics for the People was created by Cathy L. Stewart, an activist in independent politics since 1984 and the Vice President for National Development at Independent Voting, and began as a popular in-person educational series for independent minded Americans.
In 2012, Cathy relaunched the series as an innovative online Book Club that explores history and politics from an independent point of view.
The Politics for the People Book Club reads fiction, history, poetry, and current affairs. Club members read each book over a 6-8 week period and have the opportunity to participate in a lively conversation in the Readers’ Forum on our blog. In addition, the blog provides our members with reviews, author bios, interviews and videos to enrich the reading experience. Each selection culminates with a lively conference call with our author where we have a chance to speak directly with them and create a thought provoking conversation. The Politics for the People book club enjoys a reputation among our authors for creating conversations about their work that have great depth and scope.
Politics for the People Book Club members are diverse, from across the country, from all walks of life and from different educational backgrounds and reading experiences. I hope you will join us.
