Dinah Yessne's Memoir Of An Unknown Activist

Book cover for "Politically Defined" by Dinah Yessne

Dinah Yessne's first political act, as she recalls it, was spinning a homemade Wheel of Fortune at a fundraiser for presidential candidate Henry Wallace when she was three years old. From that auspicious beginning, she went on to champion the causes of her time: civil rights, peace, anti-war, women's rights, gay rights, economic equality, immigrant rights, and at one time or another she was tapped by Governor Madeline Kunin to run for State Office, endorsed by Congressman Bernie Sanders - and just plain ticked off one day presidential candidate,  Howard Dean. 

She tells the stories in her new book "Politically Defined: Memoir of an Unknown Activist."
