Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorRose Aguilar
A San Francisco radio host grown tired of media stereotypes, Rose Aguilar packed up her van and set out on a six-month road trip through the red-state South and West to find out what voters there really care about. Equal parts travelogue, political reportage, and personal discovery, "Red Highways" challenges conventional wisdom and calls for a more thoughtful and productive dialogue between Red and Blue America.

“"Red Highways" is riveting -- I could not put it down. Alive with the voices of real people, it is both heartening and heart wrenching, both enraging and inspiring, full of insights and information. If you want to understand our country, and care about its future, read this book!”
-Riane Eisler, author of "The Real Wealth of Nations" and "The Chalice and The Blade"

“"Red Highways" takes us out of our personal 'Green Zones' to taste the diverse complexity of so-called conservative states, and challenges stereotypes reinforced by the corporate media. For mindless drivel from a pundit, watch CNN; for a clear view of what people of various political ideologies in the U.S. want, think, and believe, read this book.”
-Dahr Jamail, author of "Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq"

“"Red Highways" is a trip through the USA’s byways, far beyond what the author calls “the media’s obsession with stereotypes.” Rose Aguilar takes us along as the rubber meets the road—and guides us through a remarkable quest for human substance instead of media clichés.”
-Norman Solomon, author of "Made Love, Got War: Close Encounters with America’s Warfare State"
