Can New e-Book Series Help Spread Tea Party Message?


"reinvigorate and democratize the conservative intellectual movement by..."

Broadside Books, a conservative imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, recently launched what it calls a "groundbreaking e-book series."

That new series, which is now available at an e-platform near you, is called "Voices of the Tea Party."

The series publishes short, pamphlet-like political works on topics such as Obamacare ("First Do No Harm") and grassroots activism ("Community Organizing for Conservatives").

At $2 per e-book, the purpose of these long essays is to "reinvigorate and democratize the conservative intellectual movement by lowering barriers to entry for citizen-activists who have something important to say," according to Adam Bellow. Bellow, the son of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Saul Bellow, is the editor of Broadside Books.

"The Tea Party is the most exciting political movement of my lifetime," Bellow recently told CNN. "I say that as someone who was around during the 60s and was in many ways a product of that decade."

The mission of "Voices of the Tea Party," in the words of Broadside Books' website, is to connect readers and writers to those "citizen activists" Bellow mentioned:

Readers and writers alike can thereby join important national discussion within this ever-expanding community of citizen activists who have dedicated themselves to securing the movements' core values of constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility and free markets.

Bellow is pictured below, left, with The Blaze's editor-in-chief Scott Baker.

In this interview with Baker, Bellow discusses the genesis of "Voices of the Tea Party"---and of his own political conservatism, which was awakened, he explains, in the 1980s.
