Harvard Book Store and Boston Review welcome Senator ELIZABETH WARREN for a discussion of her memoir A Fighting Chance.
CAN'T ATTEND THE EVENT? We are also taking pre-orders for signed copies that can be held for in-store pickup or shipped throughout the U.S. Pre-order signed copies here. We are not taking requests for personalized inscriptions.
A Fighting Chance is Senator Warren’s personal story of her rise from a working class family in Oklahoma to the United States Senate, where she is the senior senator from Massachusetts. The book is a rousing call for protecting the middle class—the backbone of America—and for building a stronger country. It includes her work in the Senate and her improbable campaign to get there; her fight to establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; her effort to expose the truth behind the $700 billion bank bailout; and her battles with lobbyists over bankruptcy regulations. Through stories of hope and triumph, the book shows how Americans can wake up a government that has too often been consumed by special interests.
It is also a very personal story of the opportunities and access to education that enabled her, as a young wife and mother, to become first a teacher, then a lawyer. The main focus of the book, however, is the conflict America now faces between giant institutions and the needs of everyday citizens.
Please note: This event will not include a public signing. Pre-signed books will be available for purchase at the event.
