The Fifth Letter - Book #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 8/13 #TheFifthLetter


According to our Supreme Court corporations and people are both entitled to certain fundamental rights. Per the Monday SCOTUS rulings about raisins and hotels, corporations won even more beneficial constitutional protections. Are corporations people too?

“It’s time for people to take political action in the United States,” declares author and scholar Dr. Vivian Carpenter. In her new book, The Fifth Letter, Dr. Carpenter has done the research, and uses this incredible story to inform how Corporate Personhood is an evolving—and dangerous—threat to our individual basic rights. An accomplished scholar whose previous research was founded by The National Science Foundation and The Ford Foundation, Dr. Carpenter channels her platform to the U.S. Citizens through a riveting account of what could happen if this issue stays under the radar.
Former U.S. Senator Bob Graham said it well, “Frequently political novels are a genre for truth telling. Dr. Vivian Carpenter’s description of inside Washington rings true. The Fifth Letter takes us forward to a United States Supreme Court foreshadowed by the current court’s personalities and political tilt. This novel will engage and educate readers.”

A fascinating, informed, and engaging personality, Dr. Carpenter now has immediate availability for interviews and feature/profile opportunities around the release of The Fifth Letter to talk about:
  • Who is a person with inalienable rights in America?
  • Examples of corporate personhood influence and consequences to Americans
  • How individuals can fuel healthy debate around inalienable rights and what it will take to level the playing field with corporations
  • How corporations have superior rights to individuals, in turn weakening our national security

Excerpt:
Our economy is in decline because of the ruthless pursuit of rational self-interest on Wall Street, Main Street and Union Street.
Our economic transformation must go forth on a platform of enlightened self-interest. Everyone must wake up and take action. Everyone matters.
We are a group of enlightened souls with passion in our hearts that drives us to fight for what is morally right—We share the spirit and passion of General George Washington. That spirit compels us to act in the face of great danger.
If you won’t issue the fifth letter, you’ll leave us with no choice. This is war. 

About The Fifth Letter:
A highly impressive work of fiction built around deep research of American history and our inalienable rights brings to life Vivian Carpenter’s debut political thriller, The Fifth Letter. The story of courageous Katherine Helena Ross, the first black female Supreme Court justice caught between her conscience and political expedience when forced to consider the most important question facing the U.S. Supreme Court today: Who is a person with inalienable rights?

Former U.S. Senator Bob Graham said it well, “Frequently political novels are a genre for truth telling. Dr. Vivian Carpenter’s description of inside Washington rings true. The Fifth Letter takes us forward to a United States Supreme Court foreshadowed by the current court’s personalities and political tilt. This novel will engage and educate readers.”

The protagonist, Katherine, struggles to do what is right— facing death threats, manipulation, and personal challenges along the way. Inspired by her mother’s 1940s memoir, Katherine finds the courage to turn the spotlight on, and help the public understand the most important issue facing Americans: inferior individual rights.

Recognizing the need for radical change, Carpenter explains, “The Fifth Letter is about us. All of us. I hope it will open the doors of your mind.”
