Susan Rice

When: Thu., Feb. 27, 4:30 p.m. 2020

Balancing work, parenthood and a personal life can be challenging, but particularly if work means serving as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Susan Rice, who held that position from 2009 to 2013 and was president Barack Obama’s national security adviser from 2013 to 2017, reflects on her life and career in her 2019 memoir Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For. From her Washington, D.C., childhood to weathering criticism for her public statements regarding the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, Rice lets readers in on her personal and professional journey. She discusses the book with Daniel Benjamin, director of the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding.

Price: Free; preregister.
