Hey Meghan,

A couple are not technically true memoirs, but maybe more along the lines of a biography:

Chasing the Flame: Sergio Vieira de Mello and the Fight to Save the World by Samantha Power
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah?
Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance by Barack Obama
The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream by Barack Obama
Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy, and the West by Benazir Bhutto?
Gandhi's Passion: The Life and Legacy of Mahatma Gandhi by Stanley A. Wolpert ???
The Woman Behind the New Deal: The Life of Frances Perkins, FDR'S Secretary of Labor and His Moral Conscience
by Kirstin Downey

Hi all,

As we'll be reading a political memoir in November, seems like a good time to get a list of possible books going. Please add your suggestions by Tuesday, September 28th at 5pm. Suggestions will be added to a poll so we can vote and choose a book by Friday October 1st!

Either post suggestions on the event page, or feel free to email directly to me!
