Author of 'Almost Madam President' to sign books at Moravian Book Shop

March 30, 2010

Nichola Gutgold will sign copies of her latest book, "Almost Madam President: Why Hillary Clinton ‘won’ in 2008," from 1 to 3 p.m. on April 24, at the Moravian Book Shop at 428 Main Street in Bethlehem, Pa.

Gutgold, associate professor of communication arts and sciences at Penn State Lehigh Valley, argues that although Hillary Clinton did not win the White House, she gained more than she lost, since she demonstrated rhetorical elasticity like no American woman before her. In her book, she also argues that Clinton’s campaign was not symbolic, as other women’s campaigns for the United States presidency. Gutgold is at work on another book, tentatively titled "Why Not Madam President?"

Her other books are "Seen and Heard: the Women of Television News" and "Paving the Way for Madam President." With Molly Wertheimer she co-authored "Elizabeth Hanford Dole: Speaking from the Heart."
