Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage

Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway Street, Redwood City

Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Fox Theatre Box Office

Join us for an unforgettable evening with America's smartest, feistiest, and funniest politician, Barney Frank. In Frank's candid and witty political memoir, Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage, we find out how a disheveled, intellectually combative gay Jew with a trademark New Jersey-Massachusetts accent, became one of the most powerful and effective members of Congress.

In Frank, he chronicles his lifelong struggle against inequality, which culminated in co-writing the most significant Wall Street regulations since the Great Depression. Barney Frank continues to be an important voice for economic fairness at a time when many of the regulations he authored are being challenged.

With his trademark directness and insight, Frank explores the emotional toll of living in the closet and how he became the first member of Congress to voluntarily disclose his homosexuality. He also details the favors, grudges, and fears that shape a legislator's career. 

We can't wait to hear Frank's legendary rhetorical skills in action and to spend an evening with the person who led the debate on some of the most significant issues of our time.

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 is the first member of congress to enter a same-sex marriage while serving in office.
