Carol Schwartz - Quite a Life!
Carol Schwartz will be appearing to sign copies of her memoir, Quite a Life!
Quite a Life!: From Defeat to Defeat … and Back is the story of a Republican (now Independent) gal from Texas who tried hard to become Democratic D.C.’s Mayor. Carol Schwartz was an elected official in Washington, D.C., spanning four decades, on both the Board of Education and the Council of the District of Columbia. Although a Republican then, where the voter registration was against her 11 to 1, she ran for Mayor five times, coming close to defeating Marion Barry in 1994. It is still the closest Mayoral general election in the city’s history.
Always a straight-shooter, in Quite a Life!, Carol talks about her life with characteristic candor and her opinions with unbridled honesty - and usually with humor. From her difficult childhood in West Texas to her unexpected political victories, to her losses both in public and private life, including the sudden death of her husband, Carol Schwartz tells it like it was.
The signing will take place on Sunday, December 9, from 9 a.m. until noon.
