On Thursday, November 1st, at 6 pm, Itinerant Literate Books will host author Elly Lonon for a book signing and conversation with Mount Pleasant Town Council member G.M. Whitley in celebration of Lonon’s new graphic novel and political satire, Amongst the Liberal Elite: The Road Trip Exploring Societal Inequities Solidified by Trump.
This event will be held at Itinerant Literate Bookstop in Park Circle. Light refreshments will be served, along with a healthy helping of self-deprecating humor and a side of political wokeness. Preorders are available for Amongst the Liberal Elite on Itinerant Literate’s online store, or you can get your book the day of the event.
About the book
Based on the successful McSweeney’s column, Amongst the Liberal Elite takes readers on a cross-country road trip with romantic partners Alex and Michael. Seeking to reconnect with their fellow Americans and better understand how Trump won on the election, they embark on a journey marked with personal and societal realizations. Arguments about topics ranging from mom-shaming to misogyny related to their pet cat, and anticlimactic tourist attractions that deepen their gloom about the nation, bring Alex and Michael clarity about what it means to resist. Amongst the Liberal Elite is the political satire we’ve all been waiting for—one that offers comic relief from ourselves, no matter party affiliation.
About the author
Elly Lonon, a member of the Liberal Elite herself, lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. Born and raised in the Tarheel State, Lonon has attended graduate school in Manhattan and after years working in the music industry there, transitioned to nonprofit work in suburban New Jersey ( near a Superfund site that promptly gave her cancer). Once in remission, she read far too many self-help books, learned to embrace life, and abandoned her previous career to write and procreate.
