Former Speaker of the House JOHN BOEHNER’s candid new memoir arrives in April 2021 and holds the same storytelling power as his speeches and interviews. On the House: A Washington Memoir reveals behind-the-scenes stories of how Washington really works, Boehner’s comeback after being kicked off the leadership ladder, and what helps make a successful leader, from Ford and Reagan to Obama, Trump, and Biden – all delivered with Boehner’s signature wry wit. He also discusses how both the Democratic and Republican Parties have become so different today, where he sees them going next, and what advice he’s given to his own party about shaping the future of the GOP.
A fantastic programming idea for your event is to pre-order or send attendees Speaker Boehner’s book in advance to generate buzz about his honest reflections and leave your guests with a tangible memento. As a major trade association said after an event with Speaker Boehner: “The Speaker rocked as our keynote….for the rest of our convention I had people telling me how much they enjoyed him….mostly because he was so candid. That’s Boehner!," and another trade organization raved, "He didn’t hold back so we heard some great stories and zingers!"
