Crossing the Aisle
COUP is the story of the extraordinary 1979 ouster of Tennessee’s Governor Ray Blanton by senior leaders of his own political party. Based on 163 interviews, it’s the story of one fateful day when unlikely collaborators came together from opposite sides of the political aisle.
Keel’s ‘First Drafts’ cover a lot of ground, ranging from his published newspaper columns to his ‘Field Notes’ which are more frequent posts that may become larger works about our civic life.
