The Ann Korologos Gallery Art & Literature Program presents Madam Secretary Albright for a Book Signing and Author’s Talk on Wednesday, August 9th, 5 to 7PM, discussing her 2006 book, The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs, as it relates to the current political landscape.
Written during the era of President Bush, The Mighty and the Almighty remains incredibly relevant as America moves forward in this current day. Madeleine Albright, the former Secretary of State, best selling author, and professor, offers a thoughtful and often surprising look at the role of religion in shaping America’s approach to the world.
Madeleine K. Albright is Chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategy firm, and Chair of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory firm focused on emerging markets. Dr. Albright was the 64th Secretary of State of the United States. In 1997, she was named the first female Secretary of State and became, at that time, the highest-ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government. From 1993 to 1997, Dr. Albright served as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations and was a member of the President’s Cabinet. She is a Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. Dr. Albright chairs the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs. She is also the president of the Truman Scholarship Foundation. In 2012, she was chosen by President Obama to receive the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in recognition of her contributions to international peace and democracy.
