Anything for a Vote: Author Talk with Joe Cummins
Main Library – Thursday 6/23 @ 7 pm. Maplewood author Joe Cummins will share surprising facts and shameless anecdotes from his book Anything for a Vote: Dirty Tricks, Cheap Shots, and October Surprises in U.S. Presidential Campaigns. History reveals that smear campaigns are as American as apple pie. Anything for a Vote is an illustrated look at 200-plus years of dirty tricks and bad behavior in presidential elections, from George Washington to Barack Obama and John McCain. It’s a nonpartisan, funny but historical look at our most famous presidents playing to the dirtiest game of all—political campaigning! Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
