Bartleby’s Books hosts Becca Balint
WILMINGTON - Bartleby’s Books will host a book reading and signing with Becca Balint on Wednesday, September 28, at 6 pm. Balint will discuss her book “The Girl in the Yellow Pantsuit: Essays on Politics, History and Culture.”
Balint is a stateswoman, current candidate for the US House of Representatives, and president pro tempore of the Vermont Senate. After two decades teaching history and civics to middle-schoolers and community college students, Balint won her debut race for state senate in 2014. She has been elected four times, despite primary challenges in every race. In 2018 she was elected by the Senate Democratic Caucus to serve as majority leader, and in 2020 she was unanimously elected by the entire Senate to serve as president pro tempore. She is an avid outdoorswoman and motorcyclist.
“The Girl in the Yellow Pantsuit” collects the best-loved of Balint’s weekly columns on politics, history, and culture. Balint’s curiosity, humor, and deep affection for her subjects provide readers with new ways of examining trenchant problems. Her clear-eyed perspectives on subjects as wide-ranging as American politics, global affairs, education policy, and parenthood challenge readers to think more deeply about their own place in the world and the impact they want to leave.
