Gloria Gavris, a Newton resident, joined Marcia Johnson for a conversation about her book E is for Election Day. During the conversation we learn about Gloria’s early involvement in elections and civic engagement in her home town of Everett Massachusetts, where she became involved in her father and brother’s campaigns for local office at an early age.
Gloria also shared how she has been working with educators to help students of all ages learn more about elections and how they can become actively involved. She shares how her book became something special to her and some of the 2016 presidential candidates. It is fascinating!
With the 2020 presidential, congressional, and state legislative campaigns in full-swing, Gloria shares ideas on how parents can use this book as an educational tool to help their families learn, in real time, more about the election process.
