Nancy Pelosi has lived on the cutting edge of the revolutions in both women’s roles and in the nation’s movement to more polarized politics. She has established herself as a crucial friend or formidable foe to U.S. presidents, a master legislator, and an indefatigable political warrior. Author and journalist Susan Page delves into Pelosi’s remarkable life and how the first woman Speaker of the House has shaped our nation.
Susan Page is the author of the bestselling book Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power and the Washington Bureau chief of USA Today. Douglas Brinkley (moderator) is a bestselling author and serves as presidential historian for CNN and the New-York Historical Society.
