“A San Francisco radio host grown tired of media stereotypes, Rose Aguilar packed up her van, picked up her boyfriend, and set out on a six-month road trip through the red-state 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.” Copies of Red Highways will be available for purchase, courtesy of our friends at Books Inc. of Alameda.
