DEDE FELDMAN BOOK TALK AT PLACITAS LIBRARY MAR.26
Former State Senator Dede Feldman will talk about her new book, Ten More Doors: politics and the path to change, at the Placitas Library Saturday afternoon, March 26. This is a re-scheduled event. It starts at 2 p.m.
“This is a memoir, written in the first person, not in the journalistic style I used as a journalist and a legislator to explain what happened and why,” Feldman said.
“Like all memoirs, it made me look on the past with new eyes. I am older and, I hope, wiser now than in the 1980s and 1990s when I campaigned hard for progressives and women —who generally lost— and in the 2000s when I began to gain steam as a senator.”
She hopes the book will inspire and encourage activists of all ages. “During these challenging times, it’s hard to find the inspiration and hope we need to keep knocking on doors, to keep working for change in whatever way we can, with the resources we have, starting from our own kitchen table,” she reflected.
“I’ve struggled to do it, and this is my story. I’m hoping it will help others on the same quest.”
Feldman previous books are Inside the New Mexico Senate: boots, suits and citizens and Another Way Forward: grassroots solutions from New Mexico.
