Gaithersburg Book Festival: The Betrayal by Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans
May 21 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 amFREE
At the iconic Gaithersburg Book Festival on May 21, I will be interviewing author Ira Shapiro on his new book The Betrayal: How Mitch McConnell and thee Senate Republicans Abandoned America.
This remarkable narrative of the past few years remains increasingly relevant today.
For me, this is the first in-person GBF since 2019 and my third (or fourth) appearance; last year I was on Zoom separately interviewing columnist E.J. Dionne and New Yorker writer Casey Cep. In 2018, I appeared with another author to discuss my book Five for Freedom: The African Americans in John Brown’s Army. I’m honored once again to be asking the questions of yet another distinguished author. I’ll be also signing my own book (and Ira Shapiro will be signing his) immediately following the presentation, which will begin at 10:15 at the James Michener Pavilion on Saturday morning, May 21.
