Thurber House Special Event: Senator Sherrod Brown

November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Thurber House is pleased to present U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown in partnership with Gramercy Books.

Since his election to the U.S. Senate in 2006, Sherrod Brown has sat on the Senate floor at a desk with a proud history: Desk 88. In his new book, Desk 88, Brown profiles eight Senators who were there before him, all of whom fought for a more just America. They range from Hugo Black, who helped to lift millions of American workers out of poverty, to Robert F. Kennedy, whose eyes were opened by an undernourished Mississippi child, to Idaho’s Glen Taylor, a singing cowboy who stood up to segregationists.

These eight portraits in political courage tell of the triumphs and failures of politicians to fight against entrenched special interests and advance the cause of economic or racial fairness. Brown dramatizes the hard work and high ideals required to renew the social contract and create a new era in which Americans of all backgrounds can know the “Dignity of Work.”
