Book Launch: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Trump

Tue May 25 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm PDT
Event Details
From the campaign trail to the White House, this new release by a journalist provides an insider’s view of the rebirth of the Democrats.

Join us for the book launch Battle for the Soul, by award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic, Edward-Isaac Dovere. Providing a fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats’ journey through recalibration and rebirth, Dovere traces how the embattled party defined a direction for its future during the Trump Era.

From Pete Buttigieg’s hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses, to Joe Biden’s first-ever Oval Office interview, Dovere looks at the policies, politics, people, and the often absurd process of running for president.

Join him in conversation with Dr. Rachel Lerner to discuss his journey and critical turning points of recent history.
