Three Pete Books - Where we go from here with Lisa and Paul

January 20, 2022
In this episode, three writers – Lisa, Paul, and your fearless host – discuss their Pete 2020 memoirs and where they take us moving forward. In addition to my memoir Traveling the Trail for Pete – Finding Belonging in a Political Campaign, two other books have been written about volunteering on the Pete Buttigieg 2020 primary campaign thus far: Boots on the Ground – A Grassroots Tale of Neighbors Stepping Up and Into Pete Buttigieg’s Historic Presidential Run, by Lisa Fleishman, and Paul for Pete – Politics. Theatre. Life. One Man’s Adventures or How I Became a Septuagenarian Fan Boy, by Paul Mason Barnes. Three very different books, but all with similar commitment to an awe-inspiring candidate.
