Bernie Sanders to promote new book at Free Library of Philadelphia

Bernie Sanders, the United States Senator from Vermont, will be appearing at the Free Library of Philadelphia next month to promote his new book, the library announced Monday.

On Nov. 28, the former Democratic presidential candidate will join Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman to discuss "Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In" at the Parkway Central Library located at 1901 Vine Street.

Sanders served three terms as the mayor of Burlington, 16 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and nine years in the U.S. Senate before bursting on the political scene nationally during the Democratic presidential primary. Although he lost the party's nomination to Hillary Clinton, Sanders received the support of 1,846 pledged delegates (46 percent).

In the book, Sanders "shares stories from his recent campaign trail and maps out his ideas to continue the fight for all Americans’ futures," the library said.

Tickets, which cost $30 per person, will go on sale Oct. 19 at noon. Those wishing to attend are able to purchase a single ticket or a couple ticket. However, both options include one pre-signed copy of the book.

The library said that there will be no public book signing or photo opportunities with Sanders.
