"The Gatekeeper" Book Release Party with Author Kathryn Smith - Pendleton

To celebrate the release of her new book "The Gatekeeper," Kathryn Smith will be hosting a party at Viva Pendleton where Smith will be selling and signing copies of the book. The wine bar will be open as usual, with author Smith, in character as Missy LeHand, circulating among the customers and sharing New Deal lore.

“The Gatekeeper” by Kathryn Smith is the biography of Missy LeHand, who was Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s private secretary, advisor and confidante during most of his White House years. She is the only woman in American history to serve as White House chief of staff.

The paperback edition sells for $16.99 and the hardback for $28. A portion of all sales will be donated to the Cancer Association of Anderson. For more information, contact Kathryn Smith at 864.202.7093 or visit the Missy LeHand Facebook page.
