The State Library of Massachusetts is thrilled to partner with the Friends of the Tewksbury Public Library for an author talk about the life of our nation’s first Black, South Asian, and female Vice President-Elect, Kamala Harris. Join us on Zoom at 7pm on Tuesday, February 2, for a conversation between journalist Dan Morain, author of the brand new biography, Kamala’s Way: An American Life, and Liz Goodwin, the Boston Globe’s Deputy Bureau Chief in Washington, DC. This exciting event is free and open to all, as part of the Tewksbury Public Library’s Social Justice Series.
Kamala’s Way is the first biography of Kamala Harris since her historic win alongside President-Elect Joe Biden, written by a veteran California journalist who has followed her career for decades. In Kamala’s Way, Morain shares the forces that shaped Harris during her early days in Oakland and Berkeley and throughout her career, from a deputy district attorney in Alameda County to San Francisco District Attorney, California Attorney General, U.S. Senator, and, finally, Vice President. Along the way, he paints a vivid picture of her values and priorities, the kind of people she brings into her orbit, the sorts of problems she’s good at solving, and the missteps, risks, and bold moves she’s made on her way to the top.
