Under This Roof: A History of the White House and Presidency - Book talk with Paul Brandus

Friday, May 19, 2017

Miller Nichols Charitable Foundation Speaker Series and book signing with Paul Brandus - Under This Roof: A History of the White House and Presidency. A light lunch will be provided. History leaps off the page in this “riveting,” “fast-moving” and “highly entertaining” book on the presidency and White House in Under This Roof, from award-winning White House-based journalist Paul Brandus. Reporting from the West Wing briefing room since 2008, Brandus—the most followed White House journalist on Twitter (@WestWingReport)—weaves together stories of the presidents, their families, the events of their time—and an oft-ignored major character, the White House itself. “This fascinating book is stuffed with secrets and little-known tales of presidential intrigue. We often say, ‘if only these walls could talk!’ The White House walls must have talked to Paul Brandus, and he tells us what he’s learned.” —Larry J. Sabato, New York Times bestselling author
