New Yorkers are getting news about the impeachment process pushed to their phones a few times a day at this point. Who can keep track? What does it mean for 2020? What is the emoluments clause anyway?

Brooklyn Public Library is helping locals cut through the noise and make sense of the process: BPL librarians have compiled a list of 12 must-read books to help inform and educate New Yorkers on impeachment, and what that might mean for the country.

The list, BKLYN Understanding Impeachment, includes such standout titles as The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Impeachment of the President, as well as other books which detail the impeachment process and give historical context and a few podcast episodes that illuminate the discussion from a conversational standpoint.

The catalogue is part of BPL’s Bklyn BookMatch program, which creates tailor-made lists for New Yorkers based on their interests (or gnawing political questions), by real-life human librarians, without the algorithms.

Ready to have dinner, afterwork and cocktail conversations around impeachment that are enlightening, educational and fully informed? This list will arm you for the discussion!
