When Mitt and Ann Romney met in their late teens, a great American love story began. And their life together would be blessed: five healthy sons, financial security, and a home filled with joy. Despite the typical ups and downs, they had a storybook life.

Then, in 1998, Ann was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She couldn't believe it was real; there were no therapies or treatments to help her. Mitt told her that day that they would tackle the diagnosis as a team: They were in it together. "As long as it isn't fatal, we're fine. If you have to be in a wheelchair, I'll be right there to push it," he told her. And Ann thought, "But I'll be the one in the wheelchair." A caregiver and helper her whole life, she'd crossed a terrible invisible line. She wouldn't be able to care for her family anymore. She was the patient. Ann and Mitt would face the most frightening and humbling experience of their lives. In This Together is a brave and deeply honest portrait of a family facing an unexpected blow, often in the most public of circumstances.

Ann Romney, the former First Lady of Massachusetts and bestselling author, is the global ambassador of the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Maria Shriver is the mother of four, award-winning journalist and producer, best-selling author and creator of Maria Shriver’s Wipe Out Alzheimer’s Challenge. Architects of Change is a regular conversation seriesproduced by Shriver Media.

Lecture and Book Signing with Craig Shirley
Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Lecture: 6:00 p.m.
Book Signing: 7:00 p.m.

Please join us for a lecture and book signing with Craig Shirley on his latest book, Last Act: The Final Years and Emerging Legacy of Ronald Reagan (Publish Date: October 13, 2015). This event is free to attend, however reservations are recommended and books must be purchased at the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive signature. To reserve seats and/or to purchase books, please visit click here or call 805-522-2977.

Both the Republican and Democratic parties are radically different today, mainly as a result of Ronald Reagan and the force of his ideas. Craig Shirley’s Last Act is the important final chapter in the life of President Reagan that no one has thus far covered. It’s the kind of book that widens our understanding of American history and of the presidency and the men who occupied it. Cast in a grand and compelling narrative style, Last Act contains interesting and heretofore untold anecdotes about President and Mrs. Reagan and how his shadow looms more and more over the Republican Party, Washington, the culture of America, and the world.
