RUSH: Navarre, Ohio, and Patty. Great to have you. You’re up first today. Hello.
CALLER: Hello. What I wanted to see is I can’t thank you enough for the children’s book. I have your two books, and my granddaughter has read some. She’s 15, but I love the children’s books. You know, our children are just like lost out there, and I’m —
RUSH: Patty, you haven’t even seen the book yet.
CALLER: Well, no, but I’ve ordered like 20 of ’em, and most of those will be gifts to young people.
RUSH: Well, God bless you, but, I mean, you’re giving us a rave review on the book, and you haven’t read it yet.
CALLER: It doesn’t matter, because I have your two other books, and I’m a hairdresser, I’ve been in business almost 40 years, I’m 64 years old, and for some reason I feel like I’m the pied piper. All these young under 18-year-old kids attach themselves to me, and I got a little girl about 12 years old, and she just loves me, and she said, “I asked my teacher if you can come and talk to our class,” but I have to tell you, I’m not a good speaker, so the book can do the work for me.
RUSH: Well, you know, I hope it helps. I really do. What she’s talking about, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, which comes out October 29th. We have set a record, short of Harry Potter, that’s nonfiction, of pre-orders for this book. Excitement is just building out there and people are waiting with great anticipation for this. It’s one week from today when the book comes out, and I know it’s gonna help you because it’s just truth, it’s truth of American history, the founding, the Pilgrims, for young people.
