Blue Bicycle Books, 420 King Street, Charleston, SC
Tuesday, May 14, 2019, 5:30 – 6:30pm
“Monoc Roberts Attorneys at Law and Blue Bicycle Books are proud to welcome Jennifer Palmieri, former Communications Director for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Tues., May 14, 5:30 pm. She’ll be in our courtyard to discuss her best-selling book Dear Madam President: An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World (Grand Central, hb., 192 pp., $20).
Free and open to the public. 420 King St., downtown Charleston. Wine and refreshments provided. Please call 843-722-2666 for more information.
Framed as an empowering letter to the first woman president, and by extension, to all women working to succeed in any field, Dear Madam President is filled with forward-thinking, practical advice for all women who are determined to seize control of their lives–from boardroom to living room.
As a country, we haven’t wrapped our heads around what it should look like for a woman to be in the job of President. Our only models are men. While wildly disappointed by the outcome of the 2016 election, Palmieri argues that our feelings–confusion, love, hate, acceptance–can now open the country up to reimagining women in leadership roles. And that is what Palmieri takes on in this book–redefining expectations for women looking to lead and creating a blueprint for women candidates and leaders to follow. Dear Madam President will turn the results of the 2016 election into something incredibly empowering for graduates, future female leaders, and independent thinkers everywhere.
Jennifer Palmieri was the Director of Communications for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. Prior to that position, she served as the White House Communications Director for President Barack Obama. She has also been the National Press Secretary for the 2004 John Edwards presidential campaign and for the Democratic Party in 2002. She is currently President of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, and she frequently appears on television and radio outlets.”
