ABOUT THE BOOK
A voter's playbook on making a difference in the 2020 election and beyond from the most recognized and most successful political strategist in the country

If you've asked yourself the question, what more can I do to make sure Donald Trump does not continue to occupy the Oval Office on January 20, 2021?--then this book is for you. A playbook for the common citizen, A Citizen's Guide to Beating Donald Trump addresses the many things individuals can do in 2020 every day, without having to leave their jobs, move to Iowa, or spend every waking moment on the election.

In A Citizen's Guide to Beating Donald Trump, Plouffe's message is simple: the only way change happens, especially on scale, is one human being talking to another. It won't happen magically, it won't happen because of debates and conventions, it won't happen because of ads. It will happen because citizens take action. And Plouffe is here to help, with specific strategies and tailored talking points to make sure your time and energy aren't wasted. He lays out why different activities the average citizen can take can make a difference to getting to 270 electoral votes, how people can go about doing them and examples of where it's worked in the past.

There are at least 65 million Americans who are likely committed to voting against Trump. It is entirely in our control to grow that number and make sure the support materializes in actual votes. Plouffe arms us with advice on how to defend against misinformation online, how to create and spread content, how to register and get out the vote early, how to make a difference in the battlegrounds and how to stay involved after the big election. Filled with stories from the last sixteen years, both successes and failures, as well as political strategies that have evolved in the wake of the breakthrough campaign that Plouffe masterminded, A Citizen's Guide to Beating Donald Trump is a pragmatic, specific, and very motivational guide for the path forward.

Ingrid Newkirk: Animalkind: Remarkable Discoveries About Animals and Revolutionary New Ways to Show Them Compassion
7PM MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3

The founder and president of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk explores the wonders of animal life and offer tools for living more kindly toward them.

In the last few decades, a wealth of new information has emerged about who animals are—intelligent, aware, and empathetic. Studies show that animals are astounding beings with intelligence, emotions, intricate communications networks, and myriad abilities. In Animalkind, Ingrid Newkirk and Gene Stone present these findings in a concise and awe-inspiring way, detailing a range of surprising discoveries: that geese fall in love and stay with a partner for life, that fish “sing” underwater, and that elephants use their trunks to send subsonic signals, alerting other herds to danger miles away.

Newkirk and Stone pair their tour of the astounding lives of animals with a guide to the exciting new tools that allow humans to avoid using or abusing animals as we once did. They show readers what they can do in their everyday lives to ensure that the animal world is protected from needless harm. Whether it’s medicine, product testing, entertainment, clothing, or food, there are now better options to all the uses animals once served in human life. We can substitute warmer, lighter faux fleece for wool, choose vegan versions of everything from shrimp to sausage and milk to marshmallows, reap the benefits of medical research that no longer requires monkeys to be caged in laboratories, and scrap captive orca exhibits and elephant rides for virtual reality and animatronics.

Animalkind is a fascinating study of why our fellow living beings deserve our respect, and moreover, the steps every reader can take to put this new understanding into action.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ingrid Newkirk founded PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), the largest animal rights organization in the world, with affiliates in eight countries, in 1980. She is the author of Save the Animals! 101 Things You Can DoKids Can Save the AnimalsThe Compassionate Cook, and several other books available in multiple languages.

Author George Lakey shares his new guide.

A lifetime of activist experience informs this playbook for building and conducting nonviolent direct action campaigns.

Beginning as a trainer in the civil rights movement of the 1960s, George Lakey has been on the front lines of social change for decades. 

Now, in this timely and down-to-earth guide, he passes the torch to a new generation of activists hitting the streets. He looks to successful campaigns across the world to help us see what has worked and what hasn’t: from choosing the right target, to designing a creative campaign; from avoiding burnout within your group, to building a movement of movements to achieve real progressive victories. 

Drawing on the experiences of a diverse set of ambitious change-makers, How We Win shows us the way to justice, peace, and a sustainable economy. This is what democracy looks like.

Emily Matyas: Sol Y Tierra / Sun and Earth: Views Beyond the U.S.- Mexico Border, 1988-2018
7PM FRIDAY, JANUARY 31
Book Cover



Photographer Emily Matyas shares her book of photography.

This project explores Mexico over the last thirty years by highlighting the challenges and beauty of life just south of the border. Collectively, the photographs invite dialogue between Mexico and the United States as viewers on both sides may recognize something of themselves in the pictures. 
 

“Through my photographs, I seek to illuminate moments in the lives of people—both near and far from my home—who too often may recede into the shadows. My propensity is to put myself in someone else’s place, to find similarities where there appear to be none, to learn how to communicate, and to see where we intersect as human beings.” – Emily Matyas

 In the late 1980s, Emily Matyas began working with FAI (Fundación de Ayuda Infantil, Child Assistance Foundation) in Sonora, Mexico which is the second largest state in the country. Located in Northwestern Mexico, its border with Arizona accounts for over 45 percent of migrant deaths. In the course of illustrating projects for the foundation with color transparency film, Matyas found her vision as a photographer and switched to shooting in black-and-white, so she could focus on “details of space, emotions, and the nuanced encounters that unfolded before me."

Over the past 30 years, Emily Matyas has crossed the border between Mexico and the United States dozens of times to document with her camera the challenges and beauty of life just south of it. She photographed families, becoming a part of their everyday lives and vice versa. She witnessed the landscape, objects and trajectories of people's lives change in response to economics, politics, the infiltration of drug culture, attitudes towards immigration and environmental challenges. A selection of her photographs made during this period are published in Sol Y Tierra / Sun & Earth (Daylight,May 2019).

Sol Y Tierra includes rich and insightful essays in English and Spanish by Kirsten Rian, an independent photography curator, writer and artist; Sergio Anaya, a Mexican editor, journalist and author; Amparo Wong Molina, a science professor in Mexico whose family is featured in multiple photographs in the book, and Linda Valdez, a writer and journalist who was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2003. Valdez has been married for 30 years to a Mexican who crossed the border illegally to enter the United States.

Join the Friends of the Sonoran Desert as they celebrate the launch of The Astonishing, Astounding, Amazing Sonoran Desert.  Co-sponsored by the ASU School of Sustainability.

The Astonishing, Astounding, Amazing Sonoran Desert is an entertaining introduction to the Sonoran Desert ecosystem, perfect for visitors or residents who want a quick read to painlessly acquaint themselves with the Sonoran Desert and its wildlife. Vibrant full-page color illustrations capture the colors of the desert and the behavior of its wildlife.

You will learn about the keystone plants of the Sonoran Desert—the legume trees that provide shade nurseries mandatory for the survival of many young plants, and the iconic columnar cacti which tower over the desert, providing food and shelter to many of its inhabitants. We’ll tell you about desert species with fascinating natural histories, like the carnivorous grasshopper mouse who eats other mice and howls at the night sky, and desert termites, without which the desert floor would be buried under detritus and cow dung. We will also outline the threats to the Sonoran Desert and what you can do to help protect this unique ecosystem.

Hear stories about the Sonoran Desert and its inhabitants that will make you fall in love with this very special ecosystem.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
The Astonishing, Astounding, Amazing Sonoran Desert was written by Harriet and Andrew Smith, board members of Friends of the Sonoran Desert (FSD), and illustrated by graphic designer, Roni Alexander. Harriet Smith is a retired psychologist who grew up in Tucson, AZ, and never lost her love for the Sonoran Desert. Andrew Smith is a conservation biologist and emeritus professor in ASU’s School of Life Sciences, and the 2015 recipient of the American Society of Mammalogists Aldo Leopold Conservation Award. The mission of FSD is to conserve the Sonoran Desert through advocacy, science, and stewardship. All proceeds from this book will fund the projects of FSD.

Stephanie Land: Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive
7PM MONDAY, JANUARY 27
Book Cover
Author Photo



Journalist Stephanie Land presents her memoir about working as a maid, a beautiful and gritty exploration of poverty in America.

At 28, Stephanie Land's plans of breaking free from the roots of her hometown in the Pacific Northwest to chase her dreams of attending a university and becoming a writer, were cut short when a summer fling turned into an unexpected pregnancy. She turned to housekeeping to make ends meet, and with a tenacious grip on her dream to provide her daughter the very best life possible, Stephanie worked days and took classes online to earn a college degree, and began to write relentlessly.

She wrote the true stories that weren't being told: the stories of overworked and underpaid Americans. Of living on food stamps and WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) coupons to eat. Of the government programs that provided her housing, but that doubled as halfway houses. The aloof government employees who called her lucky for receiving assistance while she didn't feel lucky at all. She wrote to remember the fight, to eventually cut through the deep-rooted stigmas of the working poor.

Maid explores the underbelly of upper-middle class America and the reality of what it's like to be in service to them. "I'd become a nameless ghost," Stephanie writes about her relationship with her clients, many of whom do not know her from any other cleaner, but who she learns plenty about. As she begins to discover more about her clients' lives-their sadness and love, too-she begins to find hope in her own path.

Her compassionate, unflinching writing as a journalist gives voice to the "servant" worker, and those pursuing the American Dream from below the poverty line. Maid is Stephanie's story, but it's not her alone. It is an inspiring testament to the strength, determination, and ultimate triumph of the human spirit.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Journalist Stephanie Land's work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Vox, Salon, and many other outlets. She focuses on social and economic justice as a writing fellow through both the Center for Community Change and the Economic Hardship Reporting Project.

Young adult author Kate Watson shares her latest novel.

In conversation with local YA author Abigail Johnson.

Emma gets a Hollywood-tinged, feminist update in this funny and fierce retelling of Austen's classic about a well-intentioned but tragically misguided matchmaker. The summer after her first year of college, teen starlet Emma Crawford returns home to Manhattan to prepare for the role of a lifetime--and play career matchmaker to her friends. When Emma's search for an assistant leads her to the wide-eyed Brittany Smith, Emma sees the big screen in the girl's future. And because Emma knows best, she's sure that steering Brittany onto the right path is all she needs to do to make her a star--even if Brittany doesn't know it yet. Emma's plans start to unravel, however, when professional soccer player Liam Price re-enters her life. Not only is Liam her former best friend's older brother, but he's gorgeous, smart, and has no problem pointing out the (totally exaggerated) flaws in Emma's plans. But as Emma comes in close contact with the darker side of Hollywood, she starts to question the glamorous world she's always known and realizes her role in it needs to change--if she can find the courage to go off script.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
