"It is About you: How American Government Works and Ho to help Fix it.'

New Deal Cafe, 3443 W. University Ave.

Professor Cupples will discuss her recently published book, "It Is About You: How American Government Works and How to Help Fix It," a nonpartisan, plain-language refresher about American government. It discusses how American government is broken and what actions citizens can take to help restore it. The book aims to help citizens better understand how government works, avoid being hoodwinked by politicians or media personalities, and ultimately have some influence over how government affects their lives.
