A CNN political contributor and host of a popular recurring primetime special bearing his name, Van Jones was a green-jobs advisor to the Obama administration, overseeing billions in environmental recovery spending. His two bestselling books are The Green Collar Economy and Rebuild the Dream. One of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, he is the founding president of Rebuild the Dream, an initiative to restore economic opportunity, as well as the cofounder of Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Color for Change, and Green for All. A passionate manifesto that exposes hypocrisy on both sides of the political divide, Jones’s latest book draws a blueprint for converting our collective angst and enmity into real change.

*All books are pre-signed. There is no formal signing at the event.
