Laurence Leamer - Mar-A-Lago: Inside the Gates of Power at Donald Trump's Presidential Palace

Upcoming Event
Thursday, January 31, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Leamer’s new book is both an update of his 2009 Madness Under the Royal Palms, a definitive insider portrait of Palm Beach, and a profile of Trump, the community’s most visible member. Starting with Trump’s arrival in the early 1980s, Leamer recounts how the future president turned property he paid $3000 for into the glitzy Mar-A-Lago—worth perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars—how he was initially blackballed by the reigning WASPs, how he fought back, and how he was able to integrate Palm Beach’s restricted clubs. In telling these stories of Trump’s tangles with Palm Beach high society, many of which have not come out before, Leamer gives valuable insight into how Trump developed the ambitions and hubris that led him from Palm Beach to Washington.
