Pat Cunnane - West Winging It: An Un-Presidential Memoir — in conversation with Josh Earnest — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Friday, April 20, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

One of Cunnane’s tasks during his tenure as President Obama’s Senior Writer and Deputy Director of Messaging was to conceptualize, co-write, and manage Obama’s appearance on “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” with Jerry Seinfeld. As humorous, affectionate, and engaging as that Emmy-nominated piece, Cunnane’s memoir of life in the Obama White House gives a vivid inside look at a special place during a special moment. Recounting both large, historic events and small, telling, private incidents, Cunnane shows us sides of Obama the public seldom saw, presenting him as a nerd, a comedian, and an athlete; profiles the key West Wing figures, from the President and Vice President to the press corps; and tells stories of everyday foibles that humanize an iconic institution.

Cunnane will be in conversation with Josh Earnest, White House Press Secretary under Barack Obama from 2014 to 2017.
