Nancy Pelosi Reading The Woman Behind the New Deal

When asked how she unwinds, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Capitol File magazine, “Right now I’m reading a book about Frances Perkins, The Woman Behind The New Deal. The first female Cabinet member. It’s just fascinating.” We couldn’t agree more! The paperback edition of the book just went on sale and it’s a compelling read, even for those who aren’t the first female in their position!
