O'Donnell Event to Be Held in Stockbridge
Though the book signing and lecture by former Delaware senatorial hopeful Christine O'Donnell is sponsored by Eagle Eye Book Shop, the event will actually be held in Stockbridge.
The book signing and lecture by former Delaware senatorial hopeful Christine O'Donnell–sponsored by Eagle Eye Book Shop–later this month will be held in Stockbridge.
The Aug. 22 event, which goes from 7pm - 10pm, will be held in Merle Manders Conference Center, 111 Davis Rd., Stockbridge, according to the book shop. There will also be a $5 admission fee. The Tea Party candidate is touring the country in support of her new memoir, Troublemaker.
The book focuses on her Philadelphia upbringing, her career in politics and her views on the country's divided political environment.
From her website:
Troublemaker is about where O’Donnell comes from—the Philadelphia suburbs with five kids to a room—and what she weathered in the 2010 election. But the core of the book is a clear, straightforward discussion of an America that yearns to embrace freedom and opportunity through personal responsibility, and how it is hamstrung and stymied by excessive regulation, taxation, and the sanctimony of a “nanny state.” And Troublemaker will deliver an important, rousing message about what we do with the quiet anger in America today: where we can go, and how strong we can be, from here. Warning readers that challenging the status quo makes the political establishment push back, O'Donnell wants to build a movement that will continue to goad it.
O'Donnell's book comes out Aug. 16. You can check out an excerpt on publisher Macmillan's website here.
O'Donnell rocked the Republican establishment when she defeated former Rep. Mike Castle in the GOP primary race for the Senate seat vacated by Vice President Joe Biden largely with the support of fellow Tea Partiers. During that election, she became known as much for her media gaffes as she was for her disruptive politics.
Democrat Chris Coons ultimately went on to win the election, however.
