Page & Palette, in Fairhope, is hosting a book signing event with former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman on Thursday, June 18 at 6 p.m.
Siegelman will sign and discuss his new book, “Stealing Our Democracy.” The event will be held at Page & Palette, located at 32. S, Section Street in Fairhope. Signed copies can be pre-ordered under the SHOP tab of the Page & Palette website, www.pageandpalette.com. Siegelman will sign and personalize books at the event. Signed copies will be available for purchase after the event.
In “Stealing Our Democracy”, Siegelman exposes the corruption of a politicized judicial system and offers a strategy for 2020 voters in his powerful new book “Stealing Our Democracy: How the Political Assassination of a Governor Threatens Our Nation.” The book is every bit as compelling as Kafka's “The Trial.” The governor's book reveals how the Department of Justice, used as a political weapon, is threatening America's democracy. Siegelman’s story is astonishing, compelling, and infuriating.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
America’s #1 Progressive Talk Show Host, bestselling author Don Siegelman is the only politician in Alabama history to hold all the state’s top constitutional offices: governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and secretary of state. Alabama’s first Catholic governor and the first New South progressive governor in the state’s post-civil rights era, and a staunch Democrat, Siegelman was a potential 2004 presidential candidate.
His politics put him in the crosshairs of insurgent Republicans, both within the state and nationally. He narrowly lost a bid for reelection in 2002 when the vote total changed overnight after the polls had closed in a Republican-controlled county. However, Siegelman remained widely popular in Alabama and was given good odds of regaining the governor’s office in 2006. But as that campaign was getting underway, he was indicted -- wrongfully, according to scores of attorneys general from states across the nation -- convicted, and given a harsh prison sentence by a prosecutor and judge with links to GOP operative Karl Rove. The case was the subject of a CBS 60 Minutes report and documentary film. Now 73, Siegelman has devoted himself to promoting judicial and prison reform.
