"First in Line: Presidents, Vice Presidents, and the Pursuit of Power"
November 14th 6:00pm
Kate Andersen Brower will speak on her latest book, First in Line: Presidents, Vice Presidents, and the Pursuit of Power, as part of the Institute's Bookmark Series.
In First in Line, Brower dives deep into the lives and roles of thirteen modern vice presidents to examine the complicated dynamic between the vice president and president as they work together to lead the nation. With interviews of more than 200 people, including every living former vice president and those closest to Mike Pence, the book pierces the veil of secrecy that this historic political office holds to suggest what it truly feels like to be "first in line."
Brower is a New York Times bestseller for her book, The Residence, which focuses on stories of the White House staff, as well as her book First Women, which looks exclusively into the lives of various First Ladies. She is a contributor to CNN, covered the first term of the Obama Administration with Bloomberg News, and is a former CBS News staffer and Fox News producer.
