Fairview Park Branch
Wednesday, July 18 / 7PM

Jerry Austin is one of the nation’s most experienced and successful political strategists. His book, True Tales from the Campaign Trail, finds Democratic and Republican political consultants putting aside their differences to offer entertaining and honest insights into the art of the political campaign. First-hand accounts from across the spectrum detail the trials and tribulations of primaries for Ted Kennedy, Oliver North, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton; fraught Senate races fought with direct mail; and down-and-dirty tricks pulled in local elections. The variety of funny foibles and lessons learned makes for an engaging celebration of the democratic process and the campaign trail.

Brent Larkin, The Plain Dealer columnist, and Tom Beres, retired WKYC Channel 3 Political Reporter, will co-host this event and discussion with the author.
