U.S. Senator Cory Booker
Writers Bloc is extraordinarily fortunate to host Senator Booker.

Books must be picked up on the night of the event; Writers Bloc cannot mail uncollected books.

When former Newark mayor Cory Booker famously dashed into a house on fire, and rescued a trapped woman on the third floor, it was all in a day's work.  He shoveled snow for elderly constituents, rallying residents to volunteer. As Mayor of a large and troubled American city, he combined personal access with the administrative clout to move Newark forward.  He brought forward-thinking initiatives, some controversial, to Newark to fight crime, corruption and unemployment. It seemed that the young mayor was finally bringing good newsand urgent financial investment-- to a city that had suffered for a long time.

Now a United States Senator from New Jersey,  it is no secret that Senator Cory Booker is one to watch. In his new book, United: Thoughts on Finding the Common Ground and Advancing the Common Good, Senator Booker takes us to the streets of his own political educationand to the issues he cares about most: crime, guns, environmental and economic justice.  Whether funny or heartbreaking, his stories are compelling because they underline what we need to do and overcome, in and for urban America.  He illustrates why he, a product of a Stanford University football scholarship, a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford, followed by  Yale Law School, chose public service over the private sector. Senator Booker's ideas, like many of his actions while serving as Mayor of Newark, might be seen as unorthodoxbut things don't change or move forward without some shaking up.
