Live From Prairie Lights: Jack Hatch

Jack Hatch will read from No Surrender: Building a Progressive Agenda for Iowa.

In an era of endless social media carping, the notion of why public service matters may seem quaint or even naive to some. This book is about why, for progressive Democrats, nothing could be further from the truth.

Jack Hatch, a longtime political activist in the state of Iowa, graduated from Drake University with a bachelor's degree and a Masters of Public Administration degree. He served 22 years in the Iowa legislature, chaired a White House task force of state Legislators for health care reform, and was the Democratic candidate for governor in 2014.

"Jack Hatch provides a thought-provoking and challenging look into Iowa's future. His is a call for progressive action. He pulls no punches in calling for a new direction and approach for the Democratic Party if its leaders are to become Iowa's leaders. A 'must read' for anyone considering a run for higher office." —Former Governor of Iowa Tom Vilsack
