This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series.
This event is presented in partnership with Brightest Young Things.
Queens of the Resistance is a four-book series celebrating the life and accomplishments of influential women of Congress, with volumes on Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Elizabeth Warren. Each book features fun illustrations throughout along with deeply researched biographies that shine a light on their leadership, which is more important than ever in these challenging times.
Brenda Jones is best known for her fifteen-year tenure as communications director for Rep. John Lewis. She is an award-winning author and speechwriter. During her tenure, National Journal named her one of the 20 most powerful women staffers on Capitol Hill.
Krishan Trotman is an executive editor at Hachette Books, recently profiled in Essence magazine as one of the few African American publishing executives. Throughout her career as an editor she has proudly worked with leaders and trailblazers on this frontier such as John Lewis, Malcolm Nance, Zerlina Maxwell, Mika Brzezinski, and Lindy West.
The conversation will be moderated by social justice leader, advocate, and activist Tamika Mallory. She is the co-founder of Until Freedom, and one of four co-chairs for the 2017 Women’s March on Washington.
Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business.
The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a book from our website.
We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
