Georgetown Village invites the community to hear Carol Schwartz speak about her new memoir, Quite A Life! From Defeat to Defeat and Back, on Thursday, February 8, at 6 pm at Christ Church Georgetown, 3116 O Street NW.
Schwartz will talk about the history of Washington, DC, since Home Rule and give behind-the-scenes accounts of chaotic campaigns, as well as the inner-workings of government.
Born in Mississippi and raised in Midland, Texas, Schwartz visited Washington after graduating from the University of Texas in 1965. As she puts it, “A magnetic pull drew me to DC.” She began a journey that took her away from the familiar to DC and the dynamic world of local politics, where she served for 16 years on the DC Council. A straight-shooter, Schwartz talks about her life with characteristic candor and her opinions with unbridled honesty—and usually with humor.
Please call the Georgetown Village office at (202) 999-8988 to RSVP. Light refreshments will be provided. Seating for this free program is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
