Bernie Sanders to publish book, ‘Where We Go From Here,’ after midterms.
He might not have any official plans to try and win the White House in 2020 (at least, not yet), but Vermont independent and 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has announced plans to release a new book this year, just after the midterm elections. Expected from Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin’s Press, on Nov. 13, Where We Go From Here is a guide for members of the progressive movement who want to know how to effectively fight back against Donald Trump’s GOP. According to the publisher’s press release, it will feature “America’s most popular political figure speaks about what he’s been doing to oppose the Trump agenda and strengthen the progressive movement and how we go forward as a nation.”
I don’t know about you, but that seems like the *perfect* read for voters in 2018 who want to take #TheResistance to the polls and beyond.
The title of his upcoming book, Where We Go From Here, is a question the former candidate for President has addressed several times since his primary loss to Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party’s election loss to Donald Trump. In an op-ed that ran in The New York Times just days after the election, Sanders gave a basic outline for the kinds of legislation a GOP-lead government could, and should, focus on accomplishing.
“Let’s rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and create millions of well-paying jobs,” Sanders’s op-ed proposed. “Let’s raise the minimum wage to a living wage, help students afford to go to college, provide paid family and medical leave and expand Social Security. Let’s reform an economic system that enables billionaires like Mr. Trump not to pay a nickel in federal income taxes. And most important, let’s end the ability of wealthy campaign contributors to buy elections.”
In addition to his piece in The New York Times, Sanders has spent the last year and a half publicly speaking out against Trump’s agenda, and in favor of the kind of serious reforms that made him such a popular grassroots candidate in 2016. His new book, Where We Go From Here, is sure to be an extension of the work the senator has been doing, and will continue to do, in Washington, D.C. and beyond.
