The Bon Mot Book Club - Sarah Palin

Leah Costello and Sarah Palin - SARAH PALIN


Going Rogue: An American Life

Sarah Palin’s memoir traces her life from growing up in the wilds of Alaska to her decision to enter politics. She talks about the importance of faith and family and the unique joys and trials of life as a high-profile working mother. As governor of Alaska, Palin implemented changes other politicians talked about: energy independence, ethics reform, and the biggest private sector infrastructure project in U.S. history.

During the US

Presidential campaign, Palin became a lightning rod for both praise and criticism. Supporters called her “refreshing” and honest,” a kitchen-table public servant they felt would fight for their interest. Opponents derided her as a wide-eyed Pollyanna unprepared for national leadership. A big player in the U.S. midterms just weeks after this event, meet Palin in person and judge for yourself.
