Radical: My Year with a Socialist Senator by Sofia Warren - Book Recommendation

Books that discuss politics can be boring to some, but such people might want to make an exception for this one. Radical: My Year with a Socialist Senator is a first-hand witness account of a cartoonist's time with Julia Salazar, a 27-year-old democratic socialist running for state senate in New York.

WHO IS IT FOR This is for any adult who wants to understand politics without getting bored. Many
