Book Launch: Charlotte Alter presents The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For: How a New Generation of Leaders Will Transform America
In conversation with Jazmine Hughes
In The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For, TIME national correspondent Charlotte Alter examines how millennials have already gained power—from City Hall to Congress—in order to learn what America might look like when they’re in charge. Over the last three years, Alter has crisscrossed the country speaking with the millennial leaders—including firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, as well as emerging conservative leaders like Elise Stefanik and Dan Crenshaw—who are trying to rebuild the country from the ground up. Providing readers with the big-picture look at how millennials govern differently than their elders, The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For is a hopeful glimpse into a newer, younger, brighter political future. Joining Alter in conversation is story editor for The New York Times Magazine Jazmine Hughes.
