Dems discuss Franken's book

Crystal River, FL, September 2, 2017 --  Citrus County Democratic Executive Committee is hosting a book discussion Thursday, September 21 at 6 p.m. at the Citrus County Democratic Party Office in the Crystal River Mall. The book is Senator Al Franken’s memoir, “Al Franken, Giant of the Senate,” a revealing and humorous insight into the workings of the US Senate. Refreshments will be served.

“Al Franken, Giant of the Senate” is a number one New York Times Bestseller. Jeff Ayers of the Associated Press says it is “A fun and compelling book. [Franken] uses self-deprecating humor to poke fun at everyone on either side of the aisle, and he gives readers insight into the daily workings of life in the Senate. His love of the people and the state of Minnesota is crystal clear."

Al Franken is the author of several number one New York Times Bestsellers and is a two-time spoken word Grammy Award winner. A long-time comedy writer who rose to prominence as one of the original Saturday Night Live writers in the 1970s, he also won five Emmy Awards for his work on SNL. Al Franken has represented Minnesota in the United States Senate since 2009.
