|In the News with Jeff Greenfield: Barney Frank
How did a disheveled, intellectually combative gay Jew with a thick accent become one of the most effective (and funniest) politicians of our time?
Jeff Greenfield sits down with the former Massachusetts Representative Barney Frank to hear about it all: his journey from Bayonne, NJ, to Congress, where he struggled against inequality and fought for gay rights. From the Clinton impeachment to the Great Recession to the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” Frank’s words and deeds mattered more than you know. Don’t miss this chance to get his side of the story.
Barney Frank will sign copies of his new memoir, Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage, after the event.
