Book Summary

Through a series of artworks and essays, the author records her yearlong investigation into American democracy and how it works, from her imagining to make a home for herself in the Lincoln Memorial to the inner workings of a Bronx middle school student council to the U.S. service families of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, experiencing the cost of war.
