Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Notorious RBG, a lively celebration of the life, wisdom, wit, legacy, and fearless style of iconic American Congresswoman Maxine Waters. 

“Let me just say this: I’m a strong black woman, and I cannot be intimidated. I cannot be undermined. I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly or anyone.” (Maxine Waters)

To millions nationwide, Congresswoman Maxine Waters is a hero of the resistance and an icon, serving eye rolls, withering looks, and sharp retorts to any who dare waste her time on nonsense. But behind the Auntie Maxine meme is a seasoned public servant, and she’s not here to play. 

Throughout her 40 years in public service and 80 years on earth, the US representative for California’s 43rd district has been a role model, a crusader for justice, a game-changer, a trailblazer, and an advocate for the marginalized who has long defied her critics, including her most vocal detractor, Donald J. Trump. 

And she’s just getting started. From her anti-apartheid work and support of affirmative action to her passionate opposition to the Iraq War and calls to hold Trump to account, you can count on Auntie Maxine to speak truth to power and do it with grace and, sometimes, sass. 

As ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee and one of the most powerful Black women in America, she is the strong, ethical voice the country has always needed, especially right now.

Reclaiming Her Time pays tribute to all things Maxine Waters, from growing up in St. Louis “too skinny” and “too Black”, to taking on Wall Street during the financial crisis and coming out on top in her legendary showdowns with Trump and his cronies. 

Featuring inspiring highlights from her personal life and political career, beloved memes, and testimonies from her many friends and fans, Reclaiming Her Time is a funny, warm, and admiring portrait of a champion who refuses to stay silent in the face of corruption and injustice; a powerful woman who is an inspiration to us all. 

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.
