Ex-UN Ambassador Susan Rice to Appear at Detroit Public Library Sunday

January 18, 2020, 8:51 AM

For those who long for the days of the Obama administration, this is for you.

Susan Rice, former UN ambassador and national security adviser to President Barack Obama, kicks off the Detroit Public Library author series for 2020 on Sunday at 2 p.m. at 5201 Woodward about her New York Times best-seller, "Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For."

Unfortunately, while the event is free with a RSVP, the website says it's sold out.

In the book, she recalls pivotal moments from her dynamic career on the front lines of American diplomacy and foreign policy. From “Black Hawk Down” in Somalia to the genocide in Rwanda and the East Africa embassy bombings in the late 1990s, Libya, Syria, a secret channel to Iran, the Ebola epidemic and the opening to Cuba during the Obama years—Rice provides an insider’s account of these complex issues.

This event will be moderated by Rochelle Riley, who will engage Dr. Rice in a discussion of her memoir. Riley is the Director of Arts and Culture for the city of Detroit. The author, essayist, blogger and arts advocate was previously a columnist for the Detroit Free Press for nearly 20 years. This book discussion and signing is free and open to the public.

Special note: This event is expected to be full. There will be security and you must show your ticket to enter the auditorium. Individuals will be seated on a first come basis, but we cannot guarantee admittance.
