A very special gift this year because of the historic election of Barack Obama is a special set of two books he wrote which the federation is making available at a discount of almost 20 percent. Dreams from My Father describes Obama’s struggle to understand the forces that shaped him as the son of a black African father and a white American mother—a struggle that takes him from the American heartland to the ancestral home of his great-aunt in the tiny African Village of Alego. In his second book, The Audacity of Hope, Obama engages themes raised in his keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, shares personal views on faith and values, and offers a vision for repairing our political process and restoring a government that has fallen out of touch with the people.
