The Speechwriter is a novel based in the year 2020 when school shootings have become a regular occurrence. After losing her only son, Anne Math is summoned to work for the Governor of Nebraska as a speechwriter and eventually she runs for president. This novel vividly portrays the greatest threat that the Unites States must recognize - the increasing social pressures placed on younger generations to which the only solution can be found in the public education system.
Imagine a day when industries weren't built on people's insecurities. Imagine a day when schools did what they were intended to do - prepare us for the world. Imagine a day when post secondary institutions focused more on education than marketing. This is the world that Sid Crowe wants to see.
Sid is a college drop out who has found his way in a world that supposedly requires college degrees and copious amounts of "experience." He's proven that we can still provide value to others - whether they be employers, readers or customers - without having a piece of paper saying he can do so.
Sid likes stories because they connect people at the most intimate level. He doesn't consider himself the worlds greatest story teller but he's trying, people. Give him a break.
