Rendell to Talk 'Wusses' at Library

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell will discuss his book, 'A Nation of Wusses' at the Upper Dublin Library.

The Upper Dublin Public Library will host former Governor Ed Rendell on March 20, where he will discuss his book, “A Nation of Wusses: How America’s Leaders Lost the Guts to Make Us Great.”

The book chronicles Rendell’s 34-year political career while making a statement on American leadership. Rendell served as Mayor of Philadelphia from 1992-2000; Pennsylvania Governor from 2003-2011; and served as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee during the 2000 presidential election.

Rendell will sign your copy of the book; a limited supply of books will be available for purchase.

Tickets are $10 for friends and members, or students with identification; $15 for non-members. The library accepts cash and check only, however credit cards are accepted at the township parks and recreation window.

The proceeds benefit the library renovations.
