Writers LIVE: Kate Black, Represent

Enoch Pratt Free Library

Join us at Pratt Central Library’s Wheeler Auditorium to hear a conversation with Kate Black, author of Represent, Baltimore City Councilwoman Shannon Sneed, and Maryland Delegate Brook Lierman (Other speakers and partners to be announced).

An energetic, interactive, and inspiring step-by-step guide, Represent teaches readers how to run for the approximately 500,000 elected offices in the US. Written with humor and honesty, it contains a plethora of information that will help any woman as she seeks political office. Structured around a 21-point document called “I’m Running for Office: The Checklist,” it covers everything from the nuts and bolts of where to run, fundraising, and filing deadlines, to issues like balancing family and campaigning, managing social media and how running for office can work in your real life plus infographics and profiles – including wisdom and advice - of various female politicians such as Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Lisa Murkowski and Ayanna Pressley.

Kate Black is currently a policy advisor in the federal government and formerly the Chief of Staff and Vice President of Research at EMILY’s List, the largest resource for women in politics. She served as Executive Director of American Women, a nonpartisan research organization working to uplift the voices of women and the issues they care about.
