A Civilian View of Iraq

Sep 08, 2016@7:00 PM


When Eileen Padberg had the opportunity to go to Iraq in June 2004, she didn't hesitate. She put her successful consulting business on hold and embarked on a journey to Iraq with the single focus of helping the Iraqi women participate in whatever economic recovery would take place.

Developing and implementing programs to build businesses, career development training programs and jobs, she tells a vivid account of working Iraqi women, living and traveling in a war zone, in addition to speaking passionately about the failure of the U.S. government to invest more in programs that provide the Iraqi women with an economic stake in democracy.

Meet Kate Andersen Brower

Sep 13, 2016@7:00 PM


Author of First Women: The Grace and Power of America's Modern First Ladies 


An intimate, news-making look at the true modern power brokers at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: the First Ladies, from Jackie Kennedy and Pat Nixon to Laura Bush and Michelle Obama. 

Former White House correspondent Kate Andersen Brower draws on a wide array of untapped, candid sources—from residence staff and social secretaries to friends and political advisers—to tell the stories of the ten remarkable women who have defined that role since 1960. 

Brower covered the White House for Bloomberg News and Businessweek, and as part of the White House press corps traveled across the U.S. and around the globe on Air Force One, accompanying President Obama on dozens of trips including stops in Colombia, Poland, Ireland, France, England and Portugal.

Andrew Scott Cooper - Author of The Fall of Heaven

Sep 19, 2016@7:00 PM


Author of The Fall of Heaven: The Pahlavis and the Final Days of Imperial Iran

An immersive, gripping account of the rise and fall of Iran's glamorous Pahlavi dynasty, written with the cooperation of the late Shah's widow, Empress Farah, Iranian revolutionaries and US officials from the Carter administration

In this remarkably human portrait of one of the twentieth century's most complicated personalities, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Andrew Scott Cooper traces the Shah's life from childhood through his ascension to the throne in 1941. He draws the turbulence of the post-war era during which the Shah survived assassination attempts and coup plots to build a modern, pro-Western state and launch Iran onto the world stage as one of the world's top five powers. Readers get the story of the Shah's political career alongside the story of his courtship and marriage to Farah Diba, who became a power in her own right, the beloved family they created, and an exclusive look at life inside the palace during the Iranian Revolution.

Intimate and sweeping at once, The Fall of Heaven recreates in stunning detail the dramatic and final days of one of the world's most legendary ruling families, the unseating of which helped set the stage for the current state of the Middle East.
