Meet The Author | David Litt: Thanks, Obama
David Litt worked at the White House from 2011 to 2016, leaving as a special assistant to President Obama and senior presidential speechwriter—the youngest in history. Litt supplied remarks on the major issues of the day, but his job might have been more accurately termed “comic muse to the president.” Along with the laughs and the sparkling behind-the-scenes anecdotes about daily life at the White House, Litt’s political-coming-of-age story is a serious contribution to the project of representing the legacy and future of the Obama movement in the age of Trump. This is a ticketed event in partnership between Politics and Prose, D.C.'s premier independent bookstore, and Ampeer Dupont Circle, short-term fully furnished luxury apartments. The event will include a cocktail reception and a copy of "Thanks, Obama".
