Barney Frank At The Carter Center says
On Tuesday, April 14th, at 7 p.m., former Congressman Barney Frank of the 4th Congressional District of Massachusetts reads from, discusses and signs copies of his new book, FRANK: A LIFE IN POLITICS FROM THE GREAT SOCIETY TO SAME-SEX MARRIAGE at The Carter Center. This is Frank's exclusive event in Atlanta on his book tour.

This is a ticketed event. Individual tickets are $30 and include one book, while Couples tickets are $40 and also include one book. Tickets may be purchased at A Cappella Books in Inman Park or by clicking the link below. If they remain, tickets will also be on sale at the door of the Carter Center the night of the event.

Barney Frank was the first member of Congress to voluntarily come out as gay, he has a 100% rating from Pro-Choice America, the NAACP, and the Human Rights Campaign, and for two years he was voted the "brainiest", "funniest", and "most eloquent" member of the House. Now, he's written a political memoir: FRANK: A LIFE IN POLITICS FROM THE GREAT SOCIETY TO SAME-SEX MARRIAGE that chronicles his decades-long fight against inequality and how the real work of political change gets done.

About the Book:
"How did a disheveled, intellectually combative gay Jew with a thick New Jersey–Massachusetts accent become one of the most effective politicians of his time?"

This is the question that Barney Frank's memoir answers, with the politician's trademark wit and insight. From his emotional struggle living in the closet to his work on momentous bills regulating Wall Street or repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell, this candid autobiography not only discloses Frank's particular way of making change, but how the Democratic Party as a whole can play a role in rebuilding an honest, effective, and active government.

About the Author:
Barney Frank represented the Fourth Congressional District of Massachusetts for nearly five decades, and chaired the House Financial Services Committee from 2007 to 2013. He was the first openly gay member of Congress and the first to enter a same-sex marriage while serving in office. He is a regular commentator on MSNBC and lives near Portland, Maine, with his husband.
