Journalist Anne Michaud on Politicians' Wives

Porter Square hosts ANNE MICHAUD, a veteran political journalist who has won over 25 reporting and writing awards. MICHAUD reads her nonfiction book Why They Stay, and she offers a possible explanation for the wives of politicians who remain when their spouse is disloyal.

After covering politicians for decades, acclaimed columnist MICHAUD switched her gaze to the women behind the cheating men.  Drawing from multiple sources that span the Roosevelts’ marriage to the more recent scandal involving Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin (wife of sexter Anthony Weiner), Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas of Nine Political Wives argues that when it comes to the “power behind the throne,” women in the limelight weigh the risks and rewards. They remain loyal to their men, because of complex, often unconscious forces.

This event is not ticketed.

Why They Stay is currently being sold at Porter Square Books.
