Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why does voting matter? Why does your vote count?

Why should you get involved in politics at school and in your community? More than fifty contributors address these questions and others in this provocative, engaging, often funny, inspiring, and nonpartisan collection published to coincide with the 2008 national election in the U.S.

With a variety of pieces written by actors, authors, musicians, athletes, artists, designers, young celebrities (including those voting for the first time in 2008), television personalities, entrepreneurs, and statesmen, this book encourages teens to thing about what democracy means, to declare themselves, and to speak up about the issues that matter the most to them.

Includes a foreword by Norman Lear, a call to action, a glossary of election terms, contributor biographies, a voting timeline, resources, and an index. Published in partnership with Declare Yourself, a nonprofit, nonpartisan voter registration campaign, royalties from the sale of this book will go to Declare Yourself.

Synopsis:

Founded by legendary television producer Norman Lear, Declare Yourself is a national nonpartisan voter registration campaign. This collection contains 50 essays about why young people should vote and get involved politically, from well-known actors, writers, athletes, musicians, political figures, entrepreneurs, and others.

Synopsis:

Speak. connect. Act. Vote.

50 celebrated Americans Tell You Why

About the Author

Fifty-five well-known actors, writers, athletes, musicians, political figures, entrepreneurs, and more came together to create this book, with the common goal of convincing every American between the ages of 18 and 29 to register, vote, and get involved in the political process. From all political viewpoints and all walks of life, their revealing contributions are introduced by guest editor America Ferrera, an award-winning screen and stage actor, and Norman Lear, a veteran producer and activist, who founded the Declare Yourself organization.
