UC Book Club News
Al Franken, Giant of the Senate by Al Franken is the February 2018 UC Book Club selection. Faye Strayer will lead the discussion at this noon luncheon meeting scheduled Tuesday, February 13.
Former Senator Al Franken represented Minnesota in the United States Senate since 2009 and resigned in 2017. Before entering politics, he was an award-winning comedy writer, author and radio talk show host. Franken graduated from Harvard College and received his doctorate in right-wing megalomania studies from Trump University.
In a candid personal memoir, this No. 1 New York Times Bestselling author takes his army of loyal fans along with him from Saturday Night Live to the campaign trail, inside the halls of Congress and behind the scenes of some of the most dramatic and/or hilarious moments of his career in politics. Franken's memoir also explores our deeply polarized frequently depressing, occasionally inspiring political culture and asks readers to decide for themselves if he was a true giant of the Senate.
