What is the progressive vision of America? Join us the day after the mid-term election as political philosopher and linguist George Lakoff discusses "Thinking Points: Communicating Our American Values and Vision." This new book is an essential tool kit for anyone who wants to participate in shaping an America that serves the common good.

He is the author of "Don’t Think of an Elephant!" and "Whose Freedom?: The Battle Over America's Most Important Idea," as well as seminal book in linguistics, including "Women, Fire, and Dangerous Things," and "Metaphors We Live By" (with Mark Johnson).
