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

Nichola Gutgold
3/30/2010 —

Nichola Gutgold will sign copies of her latest book, Almost Madam President: Why Hillary Clinton ‘won’ in 2008 (Lexington Books, 2009) from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, 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 (Lexington Books, 2008) and Paving the Way for Madam President (Lexington Books, 2006). With Molly Wertheimer she co-authored Elizabeth Hanford Dole:  Speaking from the Heart (Praeger Press, 2004).
