Former CBS news anchor, Dan Rather has announced that he is writing a new book.
According to Rather, the book is about the importance of patriotism.
He announced the book, on Facebook, writing: “I want to share my sense of the basic tenets that I see as the foundation of the country I hold so dear. It is patriotism, as I define it, not as a divisive cudgel but a common purpose”.
“It is also a patriotism that will not ignore the sins of our nation, but challenge them honestly and head on. So in the book, I will be exploring themes that I see as fundamental to holding together this great experiment in democracy.”
His publisher, Algonquin describes it as, “a collection of wholly original essays, the venerated television journalist celebrates our shared values and what matters most in our great country, and shows us what patriotism looks like.”
What Unites Us will be available on November 7, 2017.
