05/06/2021 - 7:00pm


The inspiring, influential senator and bestselling author mixes vivid personal stories with a passionate plea for political transformation. Elizabeth Warren is a beacon for everyone who believes that real change can improve the lives of all Americans. Committed, fearless, and famously persistent, she brings her best game to every battle she wages. Senator Warren will appear live on Crowdcast to discuss her new book, Persist. Join us at: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/wbf-persist


In Persist, Warren writes about six perspectives that have influenced her life and advocacy. She’s a mother who learned from wrenching personal experience why child care is so essential. She’s a teacher who has known since grade school the value of a good and affordable education. She’s a planner who understands that every complex problem requires a comprehensive response. She’s a fighter who discovered the hard way that nobody gives up power willingly. She’s a learner who thinks, listens, and works to fight racism in America. And she’s a woman who has proven over and over that women are just as capable as men. Candid and compelling, Persist is both a deeply personal book and a powerful call to action. Elizabeth Warren—one of our nation’s most visionary leaders—will inspire everyone to believe that if we’re willing to fight for it, profound change is well within our reach.


Senator Warren is the 2021 Cheryl Rosen Weston Memorial Lecturer. Copies of Persist will be distributed for free to the first 600 attendees. During the event, there will be a link at the bottom of the screen, fill out the form, and a book will be sent to you by our bookselling partners at A Room of One's Own Bookstore. The event is free and open to the public.
