Jodi Kantor in Conversation with Steve Edwards

Previous Next

New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor discusses and signs her new book, The Obamas. Kantor takes us deep inside the White House as the Obamas grapple with their new roles, change the country, raise children, maintain friendships, and figure out what it means to be the first black President and First Lady.

Filled with detail and insight into their partnership, emotions, and personalities, The Obamas is an intimate portrait that will surprise even readers who thought they knew the President and First Lady. WBEZ’s Steve Edwards guides the discussion.

Recorded Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at the Harold Washington Library Center.
