An Afternoon with Elizabeth Warren, presented by Phoenix Books

On Friday, June 20th at 3:30pm, Phoenix Books welcomed Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren for a discussion of her bestselling memoir A Fighting Chance. The event took place at the First Unitarian Universalist Society Meeting House in Burlington, and filled the 500-seat venue.

Warren discussed her book and answered audience questions. "The Senator was simply inspiring," says Kari Meutsch, Phoenix Books' assistant manager. "She's genuinely fighting for all of us, and her charisma makes those who hear her message want to stand alongside her."

"The totality of the event was exhilarating to see and to be part of," adds Phoenix's co-owner, Mike DeSanto. "This is the single largest author event Renee [Reiner] and I have done as bookstore owners."

The event has been featured on WCAX and in the Burlington Free Press.

Elizabeth Warren is the senior senator from Massachusetts. A former Harvard Law School professor, she is the author of eight books, including All Your Worth: The Ultimate Lifetime Money Plan and The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Mothers and Fathers Are Going Broke, written with her daughter, Amelia Tyagi. A Fighting Chance is her most recent title.

In A Fighting Chance, Warren shows why she has chosen to fight tooth and nail for the middle class—and why she has become a hero to all those who believe that America’s government can and must do better for working families. The unlikely political star tells the inspiring story of the two-decade journey that taught her how Washington really works—and really doesn’t.
