In the interest of keeping everyone as healthy and safe as possible, we've decided the most responsible course of action to take would be to postpone our events. At Avid Bookshop, we're doing everything we can to take preemptive measures in hopes that it reduces the impact of COVID-19 and we're currently discussing which other events will need to be cancelled or postponed. Unfortunately, we cannot yet provide dates for a rescheduled event, but we will be sure to provide any new information as soon as we receive it.
A revelatory account by the best- selling author of Ratf**ked that will give you hope that America’s fragile democracy can still be saved.Following Ratf**ked, his “extraordinary timely and undeniably important” (New York Times Book Review) exposé of how a small cadre of Republican operatives rigged American elections, David Daley emerged as one of the nation’s leading authorities on gerrymandering. In Unrigged, he charts a vibrant political movement that is rising in the wake of his and other reporters’ revelations. With his trademark journalistic rigor and narrative flair, Daley reports on Pennsylvania’s dramatic defeat of a gerrymander using the research of ingenious mathematicians and the Michigan millennial who launched a statewide redistricting revolution with a Facebook post. He tells the stories of activist groups that paved the way for 2018’s historic blue wave and won crucial battles for voting rights in Florida, Maine, Utah, and nationwide. In an age of polarization, Unrigged offers a vivid portrait of a nation transformed by a new civic awakening, and provides a blueprint for what must be done to keep American democracy afloat.
