Angela Denker

Judging by the conversations that we hear every day in the shop, a great many people are (to put it mildly) perplexed about the state of our nation these days. Irrespective of where you may fall on the political spectrum, there is much to confound and bemuse.

One of the questions that has stumped many folks is how President Trump won more Evangelical Christian votes than any candidate in history. If you have been wondering about this yourself – well, wonder no more. Skylark is proud to welcome Angela Denker, author of RED STATE CHRISTIANS – UNDERSTANDING THE VOTERS WHO ELECTED DONALD TRUMP.

Angela, a veteran journalist and Lutheran pastor, traveled across the US interviewing people who supported the President. The resulting book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how Donald Trump became president.

Angela Denker has written for many publications, including Sports Illustrated, The Washington Post, and Sojourners. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Ben, and two little boys. She graduated from the Mizzou Journalism School in 2006 and met Ben (Mechanical Engineering, 06) playing basketball at the Mizzou Rec Center. Her first newspaper jobs were at the Columbia Missourian and the Columbia Tribune – covering Mizzou sports. Go Tigers!
