UnPresidented by Jon Sopel (Live Stream Event)
We’re delighted to be welcoming Jon Sopel back to Village Books, albeit in a digital sense!
BBC North America Editor Jon Sopel’s new book UnPresidented is a diary of an election like no other…
Experience life on the campaign trail through Jon’s very personal account of this extraordinary race for the White House. As the election heats up and a global pandemic slowly sweeps in, challenging the very institutions of American politics and the Trump presidency, Jon shows us what really goes on behind the scenes at every key moment; from the Democratic primaries and the discussions with evangelical Trump supporters at rallies and debates, to controversial interviews with the likes of Steve Bannon, and encounters with the humourless White House ‘wranglers’.
As American lives are lost at a devastating rate and the election becomes a battle for the very soul of the nation, Jon will lay bare the real story of the most talked about Presidential race in history.
