Martha Brockenbrough (rhymes with broken toe) is the author of two books for adults and numerous books for young readers (with several others on the way), including YA fiction and nonfiction, picture books, and a forthcoming chapter book series.
Martha is on the show today to discuss her book "Unpresidented: A Biography Of Donald Trump"
From no-holds-barred reality TV star to unlikely candidate, Donald J. Trump rose to the highest political office: President of the United States of America.
Learn fascinating details about his personal history, including:
-Why Trump’s grandfather left Germany and immigrated to America -Why Woodie Guthrie wrote a song criticizing Trump’s father -How Trump’s romance with Ivana began―and ended -When Trump first declared his interest in running for President
Richly informed by original research and illustrated throughout with photographs and documents, Unpresidented is a gripping and important read.
Martha and I discussed her research into Donald Trump's life for this book, and why she felt compelled to document his history for future generations. Coincidentally we recorded this episode on the eve of the 2020 Presidential Election. Knowing how the election ended up gives this episode a bit more hindsight perspective than we even knew when recording. I hope you'll enjoy this important discussion.
