book coverLisa Leader always knew that she would become a writer someday, when the timing was right.

When an elementary school teacher first posed the question of what she wanted to be when she grew up, Lisa replied that she was going to be a doctor, a writer, a teacher, and a horse trainer.

The teacher advised her that women couldn’t be doctors, but she could work for one – and that a person could only have one job.

Signed Copies!

The Twig will have signed copies available of American Reboot!

Please indicate in the order comments at checkout if you would like a signed copy.

From former Republican Congressman and CIA Officer Will Hurd, a bold political playbook for America rooted in the timeless ideals of bipartisanship, inclusivity, and democratic values.

It’s getting harder to get big things done in America. The gears of our democracy have been mucked up by political nonsense. To meet the era-defining challenges of the 21st century, our country needs a reboot.

In American Reboot, Hurd, called “the future of the GOP” by Politico, provides a clear-eyed path forward for America grounded by what Hurd calls pragmatic idealism—a concept forged from enduring American values to achieve what is actually achievable.
