Ridgefield Library, Books on the Common, hosting event with Cody Keenan

The Ridgefield Library and Books on the Common are pleased to co-host an author event with Cody Keenan (RHS ’98) in celebration of the publication of his new book, Grace: President Obama and Ten Days in the Battle for America (Mariner/Harper Collins, October 2022).  

The event, which will take place at the library on October 28 at 7 p.m., is free to the public.  Cody will be in conversation with two of his former RHS teachers – Bob Cox and Kathy Wassall, both of whom he credits with setting him on his successful writing career.

Cody served in the Obama administration for 8 years, and as chief speechwriter during Obama’s second term in office. The book highlights the tumultuous period following the murder of nine Black worshippers by a white supremacist in Charleston, South Carolina, and the impending two landmark Supreme Court decisions that would impact the future of health care (the ACA) and same-sex marriage in the country.

Books on the Common has been serving area readers since 1984.  Copies of Grace will be available at the event for purchase and signing.
