Join MSNBC political analyst and MoveOn spokesperson for an exclusive online book party for MoveOn members where she'll discuss her new book, "Moving Forward," and current affairs with MoveOn cultural director Michael Crawford.

Dear MoveOn member,

I got my copy of Karine Jean-Pierre's new book, "Moving Forward," the day it came out, and I read the whole thing in one weekend.

I'm so lucky to call Karine my colleague, and we're all so lucky that every day, as an MSNBC political analyst and MoveOn's chief spokesperson, Karine represents MoveOn members like us on national TV, helping to set the agenda. You've probably seen Karine on TV!

Karine is on her book tour now, and the final stop is... with YOU!

Karine Jean-Pierre is hosting a Digital Book Party just for MoveOn members like you this Sunday, November 24, at 4:30 p.m. ET (3:30 CT/2:30 MT/1:30 PT). RSVP now to save your spot and post a question for Karine.

This is your chance to hear directly from Karine and ask her questions, without leaving home (or wherever you will be Sunday afternoon)! She'll be in conversation with Michael Crawford, MoveOn's cultural director.

"Moving Forward" tells the story of how Karine found her voice. She wrote the book "to show that politics can be accessible to anyone who wants to take part, no matter how or where you grew up or how young or old you might be."

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Karine Jean-Pierre, MoveOn's chief public affairs officer. I'm also a political analyst on MSNBC. Maybe you've seen me on TV!

In my wallet, I carry something special that my cousin Jeannot Pierre gave to me before my first day working for President Barack Obama in the White House.

It's a photo of my extended, working-class, Haitian American immigrant family visiting Washington, D.C., in the summer of 1982, just before I turned eight. There we were, seated on the base of the railing in front of the South Lawn of the White House.

Back then, I was a timid, skinny girl with braids. I was so shy that the nuns at my Catholic school called my mother in to say that they were worried about me. "She doesn't play with other children," one said. "She just keeps to herself."

My new book, "Moving Forward," tells the story of how I found my voice. I wrote the book to show that politics can be accessible to anyone who wants to take part, no matter how or where you grew up or how young or old you might be.

If you donate to MoveOn now, we'll send you a copy of my book, "Moving Forward."

My parents are immigrants from a beautiful country, Haiti, derided by Donald Trump as a "shithole."

My mom lost her mother when she was still a child and was forced to fend for herself to survive.

My parents eventually left Haiti, fleeing a dictatorship where their words were censored but their ambitions couldn't be. My mom worked as a home health care aide, my dad drove a New York City taxicab, and they scraped by, never able to take a break, just so that I could catch mine. That ethos of hard work, grit, and determination runs through my family.

In my new book, I talk about how I found my way into politics, working on four presidential campaigns, serving in the White House, and running political campaigns.

Today, I'm the chief public affairs officer for MoveOn, an MSNBC political analyst, and a lecturer at Columbia University.

My book is deeply personal. But it is also a handbook. I include practical, specific advice for how anyone can get more involved in the political process—including which journalists to follow on Twitter, what to read and watch online, and my favorite political TV shows, movies, and books.

There's still some of that shy school girl in me. Every time I see the red eye of the TV camera or have to grip the sides of a podium to steady myself at a rally, I calm my nerves by reminding myself that I speak for the millions of people who do not have a voice in our society.

People like my parents who have struggled for every single dollar and who still lost the house they had paid for.

For a long time, I was scared, scared, scared to appear on TV or speak in front of large crowds. But now I have a platform, and I'm going to use it. I'm going to say what I have to say. I speak for others, which inspires me.

I am so proud to be a voice and face of MoveOn. I hope that you'll read my story. And I hope that you'll order it from MoveOn rather than from a corporate bookseller, so your donation can help power the work we do at MoveOn.

Click here to order your limited-edition copy of my book, "Moving Forward," now, and support MoveOn.

Thanks for all you do.

–Karine Jean-Pierre
