On Wednesday, November 2 at 7:00 p.m., former Saint Paul mayor Jim Scheibel will host an interview with R.T. Rybak about his new book, Pothole Confidential: My Life as Mayor of Minneapolis at Hamline University. The event is free and open to the public, but seats are limited. Please click here to register.
In a memoir that is at once a political coming-of-age story and a behind-the-scenes look at the running of a great city, three-term Minneapolis mayor R.T. Rybak takes readers into the highs and lows and the daily drama of a life inextricably linked with the city over the past fifty years. Pothole Confidential is that rare document from a politician: one more concerned with the people he served and the issues of his time than with burnishing his own credentials.
"It is a rare political book that makes us laugh out loud while also inviting us to examine the challenges of running a modern American city." —Michele Norris, former host of NPR’s All Things Considered and founder of The Race Card Project
"R.T. Rybak's decision to return to writing is an enormous gift to us all. This book is a love letter to Minneapolis, and it tells the riveting story of what you must tackle to make and keep a city great." —Lizz Winstead, cocreator of The Daily Show
