Huma Abedin in Conversation With Cheryl Strayed / Ticketed Event

November 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

In her beautifully written and propulsive new memoir, Huma Abedin — Hillary Clinton’s famously private top aide and longtime advisor — emerges from the wings of American political history to take command of her own story. The daughter of Indian and Pakistani intellectuals and advocates, Abedin grew up in the United States and Saudi Arabia and traveled widely. Her relationship with Clinton has seen both women through extraordinary personal and professional highs, as well as unimaginable lows. Here, for the first time, is a deeply personal account of Clinton as mentor, confidante, and role model. Abedin’s memoir is also the candid and heartbreaking chronicle of her marriage to Anthony Weiner, what drew her to him, how much she wanted to believe in him, the devastation wrought by his betrayals — and their shared love for their son. Abedin’s journey through the opportunities and obstacles, the trials and triumphs, of a full and complex life is a testament to her profound belief that in an increasingly either/or world, she can be both/and. Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds (Scribner) grapples with family, legacy, identity, faith, marriage, motherhood — and work — with wisdom, sophistication, and clarity. Abedin will be joined in conversation by Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild and Tiny Beautiful Things.
