Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was at the Reagan Library to discuss and sign copies of her two released memoirs, Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family and Condoleezza Rice: A Memoir of My Extraordinary, Ordinary Family and Me.

In Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family, Dr. Rice recounts her life – from learning to swim at 25 because as a young child she wasn’t allowed in the city pool due to the color of her skin, to becoming the second woman to serve as United States Secretary of State. As comfortable describing lighthearted family moments as she is recalling the poignancy of her mother’s cancer battle and the heady challenge of going toe-to-toe with Soviet leaders, Dr. Rice holds nothing back in this remarkably candid telling. This is the story of a little girl – and a young woman – trying to find her place in a sometimes hostile world and of two exceptional parents, and an extended family and community, that made all the difference. In Condoleezza Rice: A Memoir of My Extraordinary, Ordinary Family and Me, Dr. Rice re-edited her memoir for a young adult audience.
