This fall, Sharon releases her debut book. In The Small and the Mighty, Sharon McMahon proves that the most remarkable Americans are often ordinary people who didn’t make it into the textbooks. Not the presidents, but the telephone operators. Not the aristocrats, but the schoolteachers. Through meticulous research, she discovers history’s unsung characters and brings their rich, riveting stories to light for the first time.

Join Sharon for a night of storytelling and conversation as she discusses her book, her journey to becoming “America’s Favorite Government Teacher” and the lessons we can learn from her cast of improbably champions as we continue on our collective quest to make the world more just, peaceful, good, and free.
