GW and Politics and Prose Present Rose McGowan. Long before the #MeToo movement, Rose McGowan was speaking out about her experiences as a Hollywood star. As an actress, Rose found herself continually on display, and her stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. She was expected to stay quiet about the realities of an inherently sexist industry. Instead, she rebelled, asserting her true identity and voice. Brave is her memoir and her manifesto—a no-holds-barred account of the rise of a millennial icon and fearless activist who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, shine a light on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to be brave.

Joe Biden has always believed that when given a chance, ordinary people can do extraordinary things. As a scrappy kid from Scranton who rose to the Office of Vice President, he is no exception. During his 45 years of public service, one of Biden’s greatest strengths has been his ability to bring people together, even in crisis, even across difficult divides, all the while, respecting everybody at the table. In 2018, Vice President Biden will extend his American Promise Tour, a series of conversations that will go beyond the 24-hour news cycle and 280-character arguments to connect friends and neighbors around the topics that matter most. Biden will reveal the big political moments of his career, the life-altering choices he made, and the key traits that have helped him persevere through challenges. He will share how the loss of his son Beau tested his resolve, and how he is finding new purpose in a time of uncertainty.
Each ticket includes a copy of Vice President Joe Biden’s #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose (a $27 value, published by Flatiron Books)
