In spring 2021, in the midst of a pandemic and following a long personal battle with cancer, Neil King Jr. set out to rediscover what matters in life and to explore our national story with new eyes. His forthcoming book, American Ramble: A Walk of Memory and Renewal, documents his ensuing 26-day walk from Washington, D.C., to New York City, and the people and places he encountered that changed his perspective.
Join the Center for American Progress Action Fund for a live podcast event with King, a former Wall Street Journal reporter and editor, about this story of personal and national renewal. “The Tent” is a weekly podcast produced by CAP Action. Listen each Thursday for new episodes on politics, policy, and progress with leading newsmakers and artists.
We’d love to hear your questions. Please submit any questions for our speakers on Twitter using #TheTentLive. Live captioning will be available via Zoom and the YouTube livestream.
Reception to follow for in-person attendees immediately after the conversation. Advance copies of American Ramble will be available for purchase.
