Want to review for Political Bookworm?

By Steven E. Levingston

Read a good political book lately? Want to do a mini-review for Political Bookworm?

We're looking for readers who would like to tell others about meaningful political books they've read. We take a wide-angle view of what constitutes a political book: from stories of the rough and tumble on the campaign trail to policy issues of every sort: memoirs, political history, treatises, election strategy, environmental reporting, race and women's issues -- you name it.

The book does not have to be recently published; older titles are fine, too.

Reviews should be no more than 400 words and should tell us what the book is about, how the author tells the story, whether the author succeeds in his or her intent – in essence, tell us whether we should read the book or not. We will post some of the reviews so we need your real name in order to give you a byline.

If you’re more video-minded, we will also accept video reviews. The same criteria apply and the videos should be no longer than two minutes. You don't necessarily need to follow his example, but our fiction reviewer Ron Charles is quite a video reviewer.

Please send your submissions to

We look forward to your views and to a conversation among all of you about the political books that speak to you.

Looking forward to this! Is there a particular date submissions should be in by?

Could this lead to becoming a paid contributing book reviewer to the Post? Decades ago I was a reviewer with the literary magazine "Books In Canada". Indeed I was one of the founding reviewer, with a review in thr initial dummy issue. Waiting to hear from ypou Mr. Livingston
