The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House by Kate Andersen Brower

July 19th, 2016

the residenceDon’t we wonder what happens behind the scenes at the White House?  Kate Andersen Brower takes the reader to the private side of the White House with unprecedented access to the stories of the residence workers—dedicated professionals who orchestrate lavish state dinners; stand ready during meetings with foreign dignitaries; cater to the needs of the first family.

Now, for the first time, their stories of 50 years, 10 administrations, and countless crises large and small,are told in The Residence. This is a compelling read.

“Whether you’re a political or historical junkie or a devoted Downton Abbey viewer, this book adds unique context to our understanding of presidents as human beings.  Something that’s too often forgotten in our daily media grind.” [Chuck Todd, moderator of Meet The Press]
