GU Politics Launches Book Series, Political Pageturners

The Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at the McCourt School of Public Policy is excited to launch Political Pageturners, a new event series featuring books and their authors – no reading required!

Political Pageturners will bring prominent politicos, writers and others to campus to discuss their latest book. Students will have an opportunity to explore the book with the author, and engage on how the themes relate to national, local or campus issues.

The series will officially kick off on Monday, March 20th with Jill Lawrence, Commentary Editor and Columnist at USA Today for a discussion on her 2017 book, The Art of the Political Deal: How Congress Beat the Odds and Broke Through Gridlock. This event, co-sponsored by the Baker Center for Leadership & Governance, will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Baker Living Room (GU Politics/Healy G-18).
