Book Talk: Ambassador Susan Rice "Tough Love"

Succeed2gether’s Montclair Literary Festival presents an evening with Ambassador Susan Rice, recalling pivotal moments from her dynamic career on the front lines of American diplomacy and foreign policy. Ambassador Rice will be in conversation with Jeh Johnson, former Secretary of Homeland Security.

In Tough Love, Susan E. Rice—National Security Advisor to President Barack Obama and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations—reveals her surprising story with unflinching candor. Mother, wife, scholar, diplomat, and fierce champion of American interests and values, Rice powerfully connects the personal and the professional.

Ambassador Susan E. Rice is currently Distinguished Visiting Research Fellow at the School of International Service at American University, a Non-Resident Senior Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times.

Jeh Johnson is a lawyer and former government official who served as the fourth United States Secretary of Homeland Security from 2013 to 2017. He previously was the General Counsel of the Department of Defense from 2009 to 2012 during the first years of the Obama Administration. 

This event is a fundraiser for Montclair-based non-profit Succeed2gether, which offers free after-school one-on-one tutoring and enrichment classes with the aim of closing the education opportunity gap in Essex County. The fourth annual Montclair Literary Festival will take place March 25 to 29, 2020.
