Please join us as Becca Balint, current candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives and President Pro Tempore of the Vermont Senate visits Phoenix Books Rutland! Becca will be signing copies of her recently released collection of essays, The Girl in the Yellow Pantsuit!
The Girl in the Yellow Pantsuit collects the best-loved of Becca Balint’s weekly columns on politics, history, and culture. Becca’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 us to think more deeply about our own place in the world and the impact we want to leave.
