Lecture and Book Signing with John Sununu
Thursday, July 9, 2015

Lecture and book signing with President H.W. Bush’s former Chief of Staff John Sununu on his new book, The Quiet Man: The Indispensable Presidency of George H.W. Bush (Release Date: June 9, 2015).

In this unique insider account, John H. Sununu pays tribute to his former boss—an intelligent, thoughtful, modest leader—and his overlooked accomplishments. Sununu offers unparalleled insight into this statesman who has been his longtime close friend. He worked with Bush when
he was vice president under Ronald Reagan, helped him through a contentious GOP primary season and election in 1988, and as his Chief of Staff, was an active participant and front-row observer to many of the significant events of Bush’s presidency. Reverential yet scrupulously honest, Sununu reveals policy differences and clashes among the diverse personalities in and out of the White House, giving credit—and candid criticism—where it’s due. The Quiet Man goes behind the scenes of this unsung but highly consequential presidency, and illuminates the man at its
center as never before.

From her years as press secretary for President George W. Bush (the first Republican woman to hold the position) to her daily debates with colleagues as co-host of Fox News' hit show The Five, Dana Perino has always had a knack for knowing what to say and how best to say it. And the Good News Is is not only a political book, but also part memoir and part lessons and advice from her unusual road from a Wyoming ranch to the White House.  Dana reveals the hard-earned wisdom that has successfully guided her through a life of challenges and achievement — including never before told stories from behind the scenes at the White House and Fox, her whirlwind courtship and marriage (she met her husband on a plane), her devotion to her beloved dog Jasper and her nontraditional path to her post-White House career.
