Dr. Condoleezza Rice book signing

Oct. 26 Dr. Condoleezza Rice book signing The Bookworm, 8702 Pacific St. 2-2:45 p.m., FREE, bookwormomaha.com Whether you agree with Condi’s political views, you should admit she has accomplished quite a bit in this world. Not only did she serve as our nation’s 66th Secretary of State under George W. Bush, prior to that she was Bush’s Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and has been heavily involved with Stanford University as a provost and political science professor. Her new book Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family touches lightly on her political career, but centers on her upbringing in the segregated south. She will sign copies at The Bookworm and later in the evening the bookstore will sell copies at The Qwest Center as part of a talk Rice is giving sponsored by Eppley Cancer Research Center.
