The Book Stall will welcome Alyssa Mastromonaco to the Union League Club of Chicago (65 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago, IL 60604) on Tues., Apr. 4th at 11:30 AM to discuss her new book, “Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?: And Other Questions You Should Have Answers to When You Work in the White House”. If your funny older sister were the former deputy chief of staff to President Barack Obama, her behind-the-scenes political memoir would look something like this. “Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?” is an intimate and admiring portrait of a president, a candid book of advice for young women, and a promising debut from a savvy political star. Alyssa Mastromonaco is Chief Operating Office at VICE Media in Williamsburg, NY. Previously she served as Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations at the White House from 2011-2014 and as Assistant to the President and Director of Scheduling and Advance at the White House from 2009-2011 worked for Senator Obama on his campaign and in his Senate Office and PAC since 2005.
Call The Book Stall at 847-446-8880 to make reservations. Dress code at the Union League Club is business casual, no denim please.
