Scott Conroy and Shushannah Walshe talked about their book Sarah from Alaska: The Sudden Rise and Brutal Education of a New Conservative Superstar (PublicAffairs; November 3, 2009). In the book the two reporters who were embedded on the McCain/Palin campaign trail present their exclusive look at the first Republican woman nominated to be vice president. They included anecdotes about the former Alaska governor’s return home from the campaign trail, as well as interviews with McCain/Palin campaign staffers, and Palin family members. In their talk they focused on the reporting they did in Alaska after the campaign and discussed their behind-the-scenes view of Sarah Palin. They responded to questions from members of the audience.
