I had the opportunity to have a brief interview with Chuck Heath, Jr. and Chuck Heath, Sr., authors of Our Sarah: Made in Alaska and Sarah Palin’s brother and father. They were in New York City today for the kick off of their media tour as Our Sarah is set to be released tomorrow. I reviewed the book a few days ago and it was an enjoyable read. I also enjoyed my conversation. We discussed why they decided to write the book, Chuck Jr. being used as bait for a wolverine in his first trapping experience, their favorite campaign moment, thoughts on Governor Sarah Palin’s future in politics, Governor Palin’s work ethic and more. I also asked will the be a second book in their future?
I initially thought I was only going to speak with Chuck, Jr., but his dad was sitting next to him and answered a couple of questions for me as well.
You can listen to the interview above.
