Cancelled - Gautam Raghavan & Leah Katz-Hernandez with Pramila Jayapal
*This event has been cancelled.
Gautam Raghavan and Leah Katz-Hernandez, two of eighteen staffers from the Obama White House whose essays are collected in West Wingers: Stories from the Dream Chasers, Change Makers, and Hope Creators Inside the Obama White House (Penguin) appear in conversation with Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (Washington 7th District). More than an eyewitness history, West Wingers is an inspiring call to arms for public service and a powerful testament to how real change is still possible in America. Gautam Raghavan, who also edited West Wingers, served as President Obama’s liaison to the LGBTQ and Asian American and Pacific Islander Communities. Leah Katz-Hernandez, a Deaf graduate from Gallaudet University, worked as a research associate and press assistant in the First Lady’s Office and later became West Wing receptionist.
Co-presented with SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY. Free/no tickets needed. ASL Interpretation will be provided for this event.
