Sold Out Jeanne Marie Laskas with DeRay Mckesson

Listening to the stories of the people

Every day, President Obama received 10,000 letters from ordinary Americans; every night he read ten, and he wrote back. In To Obama, Jeanne Marie Laskas describes this unique correspondence, interviewing the letter-writers, White House staff and the President himself. Laskas talks to our Guest Selector DeRay Mckesson about how the book became a story of the state of a nation: revealing the love, joy, hate and despair – and one man’s special relationship with the American people.
