From Batboy to Congressman
Join us for a discussion and book signing at our February 11th monthly meeting at the Boys and Girls Club (407 Caswell Ave, Knoxville). Arrive 7:45 to network and the meeting will kick-off at 8 am. Our speaker, John J. Duncan, Jr. served as a respected criminal defense lawyer and judge before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives for Tennessee’s Second Congressional district in 1988. He retired from Congress at the end of his 16th term in January of 2019. Throughout his decades-long career, Duncan was known for his commitment to his constituents.
This book contains timely reflections on issues of war and poverty, leadership and the lack of it, and the proper relationship between citizens and government. Its intention is to highlight moments in a singular career. “As you will read in the book,” writes Congressman Duncan, “every job gave me strange, funny, and unusual stories.”
