CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–January 21, 2016. David Axelrod will discuss his experiences navigating the U.S. political system, including his time as a strategist with President Barack Obama at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4 in Roosevelt University’s 10th floor Murray Green Library, 430 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago.
A former Chicago Tribune journalist, campaign consultant and senior advisor to Obama, Axelrod will discuss and sign his new book, Believer: My Forty Years in Politics, during the One Book One University event that is sponsored by Roosevelt’s Mansfield Institute for Social Justice and Transformation.
“We are thrilled to welcome David Axelrod to Roosevelt University and look forward to a lively discussion about the book and the state of American politics today,” said Heather Dalmage, director of the Mansfield Institute, which annually holds a book-reading event for the entire Roosevelt University community.
Axelrod’s autobiography, Believer: My Forty Years in Politics, has been called “a well-written and often moving account of how a committed liberal measures his principles against the bruising imperatives of high-stakes politics” by the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune has found some of its most compelling parts to be “inside views of Obama as he decides to run for U.S. Senate and during his subsequent two White House campaigns.”
To obtain the book, visit Roosevelt University’s libraries, the Mansfield Institute office or www.amazon.com. The One Book One University event is free and open to the public.
