Feisty audience turns out in Cambridge, Mass.

At Porter Square Books on the evening of Monday, Aug. 7, more than 40 people showed up to discuss "Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas of Nine Political Wives."

Author Anne Michaud spoke for about 25 minutes and then took questions from the audience for another 40 minutes. Questions ranged from:

--Are the ex-wives of politicians out for revenge? to

--Why does Chelsea Clinton seem so well-adjusted? to

--What do we tell our daughters about relationships?

The "fiercely independent" Porter Square Books lived up to its slogan in providing a stimulating crowd and discussion.
