Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor to President Barack Obama and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, will be In Conversation with Vivien Jennings, Founder & President of Rainy Day Books about Susan's recent book, "Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For."

Recalling pivotal moments from her dynamic career on the front lines of American diplomacy and foreign policy, Susan E. Rice, National Security Advisor to President Barack Obama and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations—delivers an inspiring account of a life in service to family and country.

Although you may think you know Susan Rice, whose name became synonymous with Benghazi following her Sunday news show appearances after the deadly 2012 terrorist attacks in Libya, in Tough Love, the author reveals the truth of her surprising story with unflinching honesty.  Rice emerges as neither a villain nor victim, but a strong, compassionate leader.

Mother, wife, scholar, diplomat, and fierce champion of American interests and values, Rice connects the personal and the professional.  Taught early, with tough love, how to compete and excel as an African American woman in settings where people of color are few, Susan shares wisdom learned along the way.

Admission for up to 2 people is $30.00 (plus tax) and includes one hardcover copy of "Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For" by Susan Rice.

 

This event is co-sponsored by Rainy Day Books & Truman Library Institute.
