Byron Borger, the proprietor of Hearts and Minds Books in Dallastown, Pennsylvania, got a screen shot of Tea Leoni’s character, the Secretary of State in the CBS show “Madame Secretary,” placing a copy of David Platt’s Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream in her briefcase.
Here is Byron’s post at Facebook:
SCREEN SHOT FROM CBS SHOW MADAME SECRETARY We were getting caught up on one of our favorite shows, Madame Secretary, and there was a scene where, as parents, the Secretary of State and her husband were discussing donating books to the high school book fair. One title was grabbed out of a bag and Madame Secretary said “Oh, I was going to read that.” It was only a second, but, booksellers that we are, it looked familiar. We scrolled back and in that fraction of a section saw what book the show’s producers used. We stock it here at Hearts & Minds, a pop-evangelical best-seller, “Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream” by David Platt, published by Multnomah. One might wish a Secretary of State would read such stuff. What fun to catch it. Wow.
