A Discussion about United: Thoughts on Finding Common Ground and Advancing the Common Good.
Presenters:
Cory Booker and Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.

In his new, New York Times-bestselling book, U.S. Senator Cory Booker makes the case that the virtues of empathy, responsibility, and action must guide our nation toward a brighter future. Please join us for a conversation between Booker, New Jersey’s first African American senator, and Eddie S. Glaude Jr., Chair of the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University, to be introduced by Alan Krueger, Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton and a former member of President Obama’s Cabinet.

‘United’ is Booker’s account of his own political education, the moments that have shaped his civic vision. Here are the lessons Booker learned from the remarkable people who inspired him to serve, men and women whose example fueled his desire to create opportunities for others. Here also are his observations on the issues he cares about most deeply, from race and crime and the crisis of mass incarceration to economic and environmental justice.

The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP to info-pr@labyrinthbooks.com so we can gauge attendance. Seating is first come, first served.
