Rybak_Pothole coverR.T. Rybak will be at Barnes & Noble Calhoun on Saturday, September 16 at 1:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of his book, Pothole Confidential: My Life as Mayor of Minneapolis.


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.


"In his dozen years as mayor of Minneapolis, R.T. Rybak was the poster child for ebullience, a fearless crowd-surfer. . . and an advocate for equality." —Star Tribune


"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
