The Stevenson family is one of only a handful of families that has played such an integral and indelible role in our country’s political history. Feisty Side of Fifty Radio is honored to welcome Senator Adlai E. Stevenson III to the program to discuss his insightful, wide-ranging, and wonderfully humorous work, The Black Book.
In The Black Book, Senator Stevenson has gathered and compiled recollections and remembrances from five generations of his family—from his great, great grandfather (who was instrumental in securing the Presidency for Abraham Lincoln) down through his own career in politics.
The book is a treasure trove of historical references, anecdotes, sayings, and laugh-out-loud quotes. It’s also rich with behind-the-scenes politics that will inspire, amuse, and sometimes outrage the reader but will always having you turning pages with anticipation of what’s to come.
You’ll want to be sure to tune in to hear Senator Stevenson share this personal and surprisingly tongue-in-cheek tale of American political history from an insider’s point of view. His work is dedicated to drawing “lessons for the future from a rich past.” And this show promises to be an event filled with insight and humor that will be one for your own memory book!
