Sarah Palin's Birthday

February 11th, 1964, former Vice-Presidential Nominee Sarah Palin was born. 

Join us today as we look at some of the books that have been written these past few years about her life and her legacy.

"Going Rogue" by Sarah Palin (2009) 
Sarah Palin, the first female Republican Vice Presidential candidate, recounts her political experiences, her rapid rise on the national stage during the 2008 campaign, and the personal challenges she's faced including balancing her time as a working mother, recognizing the war's impact with her son serving combat in Iraq, having a child with a disability, and supporting her teenage daughter with an unplanned pregnancy.

"America by Heart" by Sarah Palin (2010)
Written in her own refreshingly candid voice, "America by Heart" includes selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her--from the nation's founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies.

"Game Change" by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin (2010)
From two of the best political reporters in the country comes the gripping inside story of the historic 2008 presidential election.
