Greetings from Casey, June 2019

Dear Readers,
If you are like me, you are laser focused on the 2020 election and watching how the Democratic party is going to navigate selecting a candidate. With 24 democrats already announced, how do you begin to learn about them to make an informed decision? Why not do it through books? This month we are launching a new program as part of our year-long 2020 Vision initiative—the Bookshop Santa Cruz Caucus where we are challenging our customer to read books by the democratic contenders to get to know the candidates better.

Pick up our reading “ballot” and select books you want to read. For every book you read written by a Democratic presidential candidate, you will be entered to win great prizes including a $150 gift card to Bookshop, a first edition copy of Rachel Maddow’s new book Blowout (October publication) or one of our original Trump Countdown Clocks which counts down in real time the days, hours, minutes and seconds until he leaves office.

Then join us at Bookshop on Sunday, August 18th, at 7:00 when my brother (and Third District County Supervisor) Ryan Coonerty will lead us through a “book caucus.” Members of the Democratic Women’s Club will read all the books and will pitch each candidate based upon what they learned from their books. After the pitches, you’ll have a chance to vote on which candidate you’d support. Then turn that new knowledge into action by connecting with Santa Cruz Indivisible who will be on hand to get you signed up to participate in the 2020 election through targeted electoral activities. Details here.
Happy reading!
