Crosscut and Elliott Bay Book Company welcome Rahm Emanuel to Temple de Hirsch Sinai for a conversation surrounding his new book The Nation City: Why Mayors Are Now Running The World (Knopf). Rahm Emanuel, the former two-term mayor of Chicago and White House Chief of Staff for President Obama will discuss how cities, rather than the federal government, stand at the center of innovation and effective governance.
"An eloquent tribute to the potential benefits of mayoral influence... Emanuel could have penned a traditional memoir; instead, he focuses on duty and service... The narrative is far from a political screed and more of a manifesto about how communities can take care of themselves by concentrating efforts on the local level... He shines a compelling spotlight on that most elusive of ideals: hope."-- Kirkus Reviews.
Co-presented by Crosscut and Elliott Bay Book Company. Tickets ($35-$45) include a copy of The Nation City.
