“THE AUTHOR WILL BE PRESENT”

Debut author, Anne Michaud’s nonfiction book WHY THEY STAY: SEX SCANDALS, DEALS, AND HIDDEN AGENDAS OF NINE POLITICAL WIVES explores the possible reasoning and motivations behind why political wives stay with their husbands after the husbands stray from the marriage.

As an award-winning political reporter, Anne has covered the men for decades – including Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner. The choices of the women who stayed with them after humiliatingly public sex scandals, those are the stories that Anne has always wanted to explore.

In WHY THEY STAY, Anne examines the similarities linking Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Valerie Hobson, Marion Stein, Silda Spitzer, Gila Katsav, Wendy Vitter, Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin.
