I've said it before, but now I have occasion to say it again: Thanks to everyone for your support for THE UPRISING. The New York Times just announced that the book made its Political Bestseller List for the entire month of June. This is in addition to THE UPRISING making its non-fiction bestseller list a few weeks ago.
This week, I'll be doing a public book discussion at TPM Café - my first post is up and you can join in here. Also on Wednesday July 9th, I am scheduled to appear on Diane Rehm's national NPR show and on Bob Edwards' XM NPR show, and on Lou Dobbs Tonight on CNN. Check local listings for these shows - I hope you tune in. Should be particularly interesting to tangle with Dobbs again.
Thanks again for all your support for THE UPRISING - it has really made a huge difference. Without your support for the book - in both buying it and in telling your friends about it - it wouldn't be getting out there.
That it is, in fact, getting out there is just example of how the progressive message of the book is breaking through because of grassroots support. When you support progressive books - whether mine or someone else's - you are engaging in an act of activism.
