Confessions of An American Dad
From Russell King
“Family Values” is something we hear about all the time by politicians and pundits, preachers and proselytes, who paint a picture of crumbling families and a deteriorating social order. The rhetoric is of fear and exclusion, and is completely divorced from any notion of what the American family is actually like. Finally, Russell King brings sanity, respect, and honest insight into the debate. At last, a poignant look at one father’s efforts to make “family values” synonymous with inclusion, growth, community, and love.
Russell King’s been making his way through life by hooking nouns to verbs since before he knew what nouns and verbs were. Russ’s 2010 blog post “Open Letter to Conservatives” went viral, becoming the single most read post in the history of the TalkingPoints Memo network and was featured on MSNBC. His writings have appeared nationally and internationally, in newspapers, magazines, books and journals, in policy and position papers, in speeches and commentaries, in print and online.
Russell is a winner of the national “Rosebud” award for poetry and recipient of multiple awards for poetry and essay writing. He holds his creation of the Wisconsin state Poet Laureate post as one of his proudest achievements.
