BYT friends, as you know – we are always trying to bring you positive, community driven events that will contribute to the national conversations rather than distract from it, and as such are extremely excited to partner with Politics and Prose and Penguin Random House to (virtually, safely) bring you authors Brenda Jones and Krishan Trotman for a conversation about their new, four part book series, Queens of the Resistance, celebrating four incredible and influential congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, and Elizabeth Warren.
On July 11th at 8pm, we’ll be hosting a virtual book talk with Brenda Jones, best known for her fifteen-year tenure as communications director for Rep. John Lewis and Krishan Trotman, executive editor at Hachette Books that has worked with proudly worked with leaders and trailblazers on this frontier such as John Lewis, Malcolm Nance, Zerlina Maxwell, Mika Brzezinski, and Lindy West, moderated by Tamika Mallory, activist and Co-Founder of Until Freedom.
