On November 9, 2016, Dan Pfeiffer woke up like most of the world wondering WTF just happened. How had Donald Trump won the White House? How was it that a decent and thoughtful president had been succeeded by a buffoonish reality star, and what do we do now?

Instead of throwing away his phone and moving to another country (which were his first and second thoughts), Pfeiffer decided to tell this surreal story, recounting how Barack Obama navigated the insane political forces that created Trump, explaining why everyone got 2016 wrong, and offering a path for where Democrats go from here.

Pfeiffer was one of Obama's first hires when he decided to run for president, and was at his side through two presidential campaigns and six years in the White House. Using never-before-heard stories and behind-the-scenes anecdotes, Pfeiffer’s Yes We (Still) Can examines how Obama succeeded despite Twitter trolls, Fox News (and their fake news), and a Republican Party that lost its collective mind.

An irreverent, no-BS take on the crazy politics of our time, Yes We (Still) Can is a must-read for everyone who is disturbed by Trump, misses Obama, and is marching, calling, and hoping for a better future for the country. After all of the sex scandals, oligarchs, rhetoric, dramatic firings, and ill-advised hirings, Pfeiffer will remind us why we were desperate for “Hope and Change.” In a conversation based on his new book, Pfeiffer, former Senior Advisor to President Obama and current Pod Save America cohost, gives real-world advice to Democrats in 2020.

Dan Pfeiffer is a cohost of the popular political podcast Pod Save America. One of Barack Obama's longest serving advisors, he was White House Director of Communications under President Obama (2009-2013) and Senior Adviser to the President (2013-2015).

Price includes a copy of Pfeiffer’s Yes We (Still) Can. Books distributed at event.
