Summary
Every day, President Obama received ten thousand letters from ordinary American citizens. Every night, he read ten of them before going to bed. In "To Obama", Jeanne Marie Laskas interviews President Obama, the letter-writers themselves and the White House staff in the Office of Presidential Correspondence who were witness to the millions of pleas, rants, thank-yous and apologies that landed in the mailroom during the Obama years. There is Peggy, a patriotic grandmother who thinks the President is trying to lead the country into socialism and recommends that he read the Constitution; Bill, a lifelong Republican whose attitude towards immigration reform was transformed when he met a boy who escaped MS-13 gang leaders in El Salvador; Jordan, a seven-year-old about to be adopted, who wants to thank the President for keeping him safe; James, who on the morning after the 2016 election tells the President to start packing; and Dawn, who writes to say that he made it possible for a very jaded generation to begin to hope and believe in the good.They wrote to Obama out of gratitude and desperation, in their darkest times of need, with anger, fear and respect. "To Obama" is an intimate look at one man's relationship with the American people, and at how this extraordinary dialogue shaped an era-defining presidency
Summary
