Senator Michael Bennet - The Land of Flickering Lights

Restoring America in an Age of Broken Politics, a Political Science Book Talk & Signing


Colorado Senator Michael Bennet has represented Colorado in the United States Senate since 2009. He will discuss and sign The Land of Flickering Lights: Restoring America in an Age of Broken Politics ($27.00 Atlantic Monthly Press). In this book, Senator Bennet lifts a veil on the inner workings of Congress to reveal, in his words, "through a series of actual stories--about the people, the politics, the motives, the money, the hypocrisy, the stakes, the outcome--the pathological culture of the capital and the consequences for us all." 

He unfolds the dramatic backstory behind five episodes crucial to the well-being of all Americans. Each of them exemplifies the hyper-partisan politics that have upended our democracy. With frankness and refreshing candor, and in elegant prose, Senator Bennet pulls the machinations behind these episodes into full public view, shedding vital new light on our political dysfunction today. Arguing that each of us has a duty to act as a founder, he will inspire Americans of all political persuasions to demand that the "winners" of our political battles be all the American people, nor one party or the other.
