Here's info on my upcoming readings. I'm doing most of my own
publicity (it's a lot of work!), so please spread the word. I have to
make sure it continues to sell or it goes to book heaven in a few
If you've already read the book, please write a review on Amazon. My
editor tells me they make a huge difference.
Hope you can make it if you haven't already.
Rose Aguilar's new book Red Highways is about a six-month road trip
she took to the so-called "red states" to interview people about the
issues they care about and why they vote the way they do (or not).
Along the way, she met an evangelical conservative bishop who now
preaches inclusion in Tulsa, OK, a woman who changed her politics
after running a domestic violence shelter in Jackson, MS, a hunter in
Montana who is thinking about leaving the conservation movement to
fight for gay rights in Montana, and green Republicans. Equal parts
travelogue, political reportage, and personal discovery, Red Highways
challenges conventional wisdom, gives a voice to the people you rarely
hear from or see in the media, and calls for a more thoughtful and
productive dialogue between Red and Blue America. Now that the
election is over, it's time to build coalitions!
