Alyssa Mastromonaco presents WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? with Lea Goldman

    03/22/2017 - 7:30pm

    This event will take place at our Jersey City location.

    Who Thought This Was a Good Idea? And Other Questions You Should Have Answers to When You Work in the White House brings readers into the inner circle of President Obama’s team as Alyssa Mastromonaco, his director of campaign operations, and uncovers how “Hope and Change” happened through blood, sweat, tears, and briefing binders. 

    This is a warts-and-all account of Alyssa’s time at the White House: putting out fires, meeting with world leaders and occasionally winning elections. Less a political diatribe than a gossip session with an older sister—if that sibling worked for the leader of the free world—Mastromonaco delves into funny stories that never saw the light of day, including meeting the Queen of England in jeans, tussling with President Karzai's guards, and having a bad case of IBS while visiting the Vatican.

    RSVPs encouraged but not required.
