Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen Announce Co-Authored Ebook ‘Renegades: Born in the united statesA.’
President Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen will free up a joint guide, Renegades: Born in the united statesA., on October twenty sixth globally by means of Higher Ground/Penguin Random House.
The tome is described as “a collection of candid, intimate, and entertaining conversations,” which started in Spotify’s co-produced podcast of the similar title. Published in an outsized, totally illustrated layout, the guide can even characteristic uncommon and unique images from the authors’ private collections and never-before-seen archival subject matter, together with Springsteen’s handwritten lyrics and Obama’s annotated speeches.
“Over the years, what we’ve found is that we’ve got a shared sensibility,” Obama writes within the guide’s opening pages. “About work, about family, and about America. In our own ways, Bruce and I have been on parallel journeys trying to understand this country that’s given us both so much. Trying to chronicle the stories of its people. Looking for a way to connect our own individual searches for meaning and truth and community with the larger story of America.”
Springsteen provides, within the guide’s advent: “There were serious conversations about the fate of the country, the fortune of its citizens, and the destructive, ugly, corrupt forces at play that would like to take it all down. This is a time of vigilance when who we are is being seriously tested. Hard conversations about who we are and who we want to become can perhaps serve as a small guiding map for some of our fellow citizens.”
“This is a time for serious consideration of who we want to be and what kind of country we will leave our children,” the musician continues. “Will we let slip through our hands the best of us or will we turn united to face the fire? Within this book, you won’t find the answers to those questions, but you will find a couple of seekers doing their best to get us to ask better questions.”
