Hallowell author, teacher and musician Sam Shain has announced the publication of his new book “Education Revolution: Media Literacy for Political Awareness.”

“Education Revolution” is a plea for public education nationwide to teach media literacy, and specifically from the left of the political spectrum.

Shain discusses his journalism curriculum, which includes lessons in media literacy, critical thinking, bias, the political spectrum, economics, current events and more. Additionally, he makes the case that “politics” belongs in the classroom as a mechanism to push back on the looming realities of late-stage capitalism and right-wing disinformation, according to a news release

Shain will be releasing 100 advanced copies of the book from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14 at Slates Restaurant, 161-165 Water St. in Hallowell. Books will cost $20.
