Book Signing Involves Father- and-Son Authors

by Christopher O'Brien

gopbookA Prospect father and son team, Dr. Ron Laone and Jay Laone recently authored the book, “The Republican Party“, a Father and Son Review of GOP History which is now available. They will be offering their book and signing at the Prospect Library on Thursday, Jan. 24th at 7 pm.

When Jay was just 11 years old, he asked his father, “What does it mean to be conservative?”. That simple question led to a journey of political enlightenment for the duo resulting in the work. The piece is a walk through the party’s conservative foundation, its founding beliefs and history of Presidents and other prominent members.

The book, as well as links to purchasing it, can be found here.
