Michael Smerconish: American Life In Columns
PRESENTED BY CHECKERS GROUP LLC
“Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right” is the title of Michael Smerconish’s seventh and latest book, as well as the inspiration for his current stage show: “American Life in Columns”. On stage, the SiriusXM radio host, CNN television host and Sunday Inquirer columnist shares stories drawn from the more than 1,000 newspaper columns he published between 2001 and 2016. Smerconish regales audiences with his unique experiences including: meeting President Ronald Reagan as a newly minted 18-year old voter; his appointment at age 29 to a sub-cabinet level position in the administration of President George H.W. Bush; the seven-hour dinner he had with Fidel Castro in Havana; conducting President Barack Obama’s first live radio interview from the White House; and his taking a front row seat as a CNN analyst for the totality of the improbable 2016 presidential campaign.
Readers, listeners, and viewers have come to expect no less from the Independent pundit whose common sense often sets him apart from today’s media provocateurs. His optimistic outlook, derived from his political research and unique experiences, is a message for our times: that the American political divide has been greatly exaggerated by those with a motivation to perpetuate polarization. All author proceeds from the sale of “Clowns” benefit the Children’s Crisis Treatment Center, a Philadelphia non-profit that provides social services to children who are the victims of trauma.
