The Lewes Public Library and Browseabout Books will welcome award-winning journalist Susan Page for a discussion and book signing of her biography “Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power” at 5 p.m., Monday, Aug. 30.
The event is being held both in person at the library at 111 Adams Ave., Lewes, and online via Zoom.
An instant New York Times bestseller, “Madame Speaker” is the definitive biography of Nancy Pelosi, the most powerful woman in American political history. It features more than 150 exclusive interviews with those who know her best and a series of in-depth, news-making interviews with Pelosi herself. This unprecedented view of Pelosi’s life explores her remarkable path to becoming a master legislator, an indefatigable political warrior, and a crucial friend – or formidable foe – to U.S. presidents.
The discussion is free to the public. Registration is required. At registration, participants will be asked to select virtual or in-person attendance. In-person seating is limited. To sign up, go to lewes.lib.de.us and visit the Virtual Programs for Adults page.
