Maria Rodriguez was a two-term mayor of Long Grove, Illinois, a U.S. Congressional candidate, and the recent Republican contender for Lt. Governor of Illinois. Meet her at our Hawthorn Mall bookstore on October 19 at 3P.

In her book, Run Jane, Run… We Need You in Office, she wants to let women know that women are both naturally suited for, and extremely effective, in politics. “It is second nature for them to cooperate, include all voices, and discover all sides of an issue. This is exactly what a good politician does, and is necessary for good government at any level from local to national.”

Recognizing that, this book asks women to look at themselves, maybe for the first time, through the leadership lens.
