What will Bernie Sanders do after the election is over?
Sanders gained a huge gathering of followers during his run for the presidency. Though he lost the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton, not all of his supporters have joined him in backing the Democratic nominee and her running mate, Tim Kaine. When the election ends, Sanders will be back in Congress — with a higher profile than he’s ever had before. What will he do?
You’ll get a chance to find out the senator’s plans for the future next month when he returns to Philadelphia for the first time since the Democratic National Convention to speak at the Free Library on November 28th. He’ll be “in conversation” with Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, who was recently charged with rioting while covering an anti-pipeline protest in North Dakota. (A judge rejected the case for lack of evidence earlier this week.
Tickets are $30 and include a signed copy of Sanders’ new book, Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In. The tome comes out on November 15th, and is already the number-one-selling new release in the “Human Rights” section on Amazon.
There will be no book signing or photo op at this event. Per a release, Sanders’ new book “shares stories from his recent campaign trail and maps out his ideas to continue the fight for all Americans’ futures.”
