National Archives Presents "Political Rules of the Road" Program October 21
Four former Members of Congress to share insights, NPR’s Ken Rudin to moderate
Washington, DC…On Thursday, October 21, at 7 PM, the National Archives welcomes four former members of Congress to share “political rules of the road”—what worked and what didn’t – during their years of public service. Former Members of Congress Bill Frenzel (R-MN); Lou Frey (R-FL), author of Political Rules of the Road: Representatives, Senators and Presidents Share their Rules for Success in Congress, Politics and Life; Barbara Kennelly (D-CT); and Romano Mazzoli (D-KY), will discuss the highs and lows of campaigning for public office, interacting with constituents, and dealing with the media. Ken Rudin, political editor for National Public Radio (NPR), will moderate.
This program is presented in partnership with the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress and the Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government at the University of Central Florida. A book signing of Political Rules of the Road will follow the program, and the book is available at a discount from the Archives Shop (202-357-5271) before and during the event.
