Author Event: Alyssa Mastromonaco

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Johnson Room
If your funny sister were the former deputy chief of staff to President Barack Obama, her behind-the-scenes political memoir might look something like Alyssa Mastromonaco's just-published book, Who Thought this Was a Good Idea? and Other Questions You Should Have Answers to When You Work in the White House.  In it she shares an intimate portrait of a president, a real and raw peek behind the curtains of the White House, and candid advice for young women finding their way. "Always fascinating and very funny, Alyssa's book is full of juicy stories from one of the world's most glamorous jobs," writes Mindy Kaling of The New York Times

Ms. Mastromonaco will speak, read from her book, field questions, and sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase at the event from The Book Stall at Chestnut Court.
