Boiling Mad at the Essex Library

The Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Kate Zernike, author of Boiling Mad: inside Tea Party America, will be at the Essex Library on Thursday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. 

As the 2010 midterm elections approach, the Tea Party has emerged as the wild-card player. Will its energy propel the Republicans in an electoral sweep, or has it actually complicated their efforts to take back their congressional majority? While many commentators have attempted to analyze this movement in one-off interviews and articles, Ms. Zernike has covered the movement from the beginning, and no one else has dug deep into the movement’s philosophical and cultural underpinnings. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 for more information and to register for this informative evening.
