The Tea Party, No Child Left Behind and financial deregulation are just a few of many concepts that have roots in Texas.

A new book by New York Times national columnist Gail Collins, entitled, As Texas Goes… looks into how much of this country’s political agenda, and anti-Washington sentiment, was shaped in the Lone Star State.

Collins will visit the Louisville Free Public Library Thursday evening.  She talks here about her book with WFPL’s Rick Howlett.
