Huma Abedin on "Both/And" Author Event
Thursday, November 18, 2021
The Chappaqua Library hosts Huma Abedin at the Chappaqua Performing Arts Center to discuss her new book, "Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds."
From her deeply personal relationship with Hillary Clinton as mentor, confidante, and role model which has seen both women through extraordinary personal and professional highs as well as unimaginable lows, Both/And is also a timeless story of a young woman with aspirations and ideals coming into her own in high-pressure jobs. A testament to the potential for women in leadership to blaze a path forward while supporting those who follow in their footsteps, Both/Andgrapples with family, legacy, identity, faith, marriage, motherhood — and work.
Huma Abedin has spent her entire career in public service and national politics, beginning as an intern in First Lady Hillary Clinton’s office in 1996. After four years in the White House, she worked in the US Senate as Senior Advisor to Senator Clinton and was traveling Chief of Staff for Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. In 2009, she was appointed Deputy Chief of Staff at the US Department of State. Abedin served as Vice Chair of Hillary for America in 2016, resulting in the first woman elected nominee of a major political party. She currently serves as Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff.
She will be interviewed by, Kim Goebel, of the Chappaqua Library, followed by pre-submitted audience questions, book sale, and author signing. The event will be recorded for later viewing at chappaqualibrary.org.
