In Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox, editor Joanne Bamberger assembles essays by women from across the political spectrum as they reconcile their desire for a female president with the realities of the candidate that’s in front of them. If you’re still having an existential crisis over whether you stand with Her or just hover near Her, a panel of women immersed in political media will help you wade through the mess of think pieces about everything from the former first lady’s fashion choices to her email server. At Kramerbooks, Bamberger appears in conversation with Emily Zanotti from the conservative magazine The American Spectator and Mary C. Curtis, the political editor for Roll Call, and follows the discussion with a signing (so you can whisper that question about Elizabeth Warren you were too embarrassed to ask in front of the audience). It’s the perfect opportunity to digest the media kerfuffle that surrounds Clinton while also waiting for someone in the crowd to scream “Benghazi” like it’s “Freebird.” Joanne Bamberger, Mary C. Curtis, and Emily Zanotti speak at 6:30 p.m. at Kramerbooks and Afterwords Cafe, 1517 Connecticut Ave. NW. Free. (202) 387-3825. kramers.com.
