WalkWithUs-Final

From an email:

“May 14th, 2016, will be the tenth anniversary of the last episode of The West Wing.

It will also be the date that Claire Handscombe will self-publish an anthology of quotes and essays titled “Walk With Me: How The West Wing Changed Our Lives”. In its 106 pages, fans from six countries, ranging in age from 20 to 70, write or speak about the impact of their love for The West Wing on their personal, professional, relational, spiritual, and creative lives.

Digital copies of Walk With Us may be requested for review, and are available on pre-order. ($2.99)

Product Description: The West Wing premiered in 1999. That’s a long time ago. Back then, we were worrying about the Millennium Bug, paying $700 for DVD players, and using pagers. 1999: a century ago.

And yet, the show continues to have an impact that is arguably unique. If you live or work in DC, references to it are inescapable. People have walked down the aisle to the theme music. Or they’ve named children, pets, GPS systems, and even an iPhone app after the characters. Or they’ve started Twitter accounts as the characters to continue the storyline and comment on current political events. Or they credit it for closer relationships with their family members or a way out of depression.

In this anthology of quotes and essays, contributors from six countries, ranging in age from twenty to seventy years old, tell their West Wing stories.
