A few years ago, I published a book titled Six Decades of Baseball: A Personal Narrative, which described my lifelong passion for baseball, written purely from the perspective of a baseball fan with no inside knowledge of the game. A Voter’s Journey sets out to do the same thing, only this time with politics. I hope that the telling of my story will encourage the reader to reflect upon his or her own lifelong political journey. For in a society like ours, saturated with politics and elections, each one of us, whether we are politically inclined or not, makes a political journey of some kind or another. This is the story of mine.
Bill Lewers was raised on Long Island and has been a baseball fan ever since he attended his first game on August 25, 1951 at New York’s Polo Grounds. He lives in McLean, Virginia with his wife, Mary and two sons, Mark and John. This is his first book.
