Peter Baker and Susan Glasser Interviewed by Talmage Boston

Peter Baker is the chief White House correspondent for The New York Times where he covers President Trump. He has covered four presidents, two for the Times and two for The Washington Post.  He has won all three major awards for White House reporting, two of which he has won twice. The Man Who Ran Washington is Mr. Baker’s sixth book.

Susan Glasser is a staff writer at The New Yorker. Glasser has served as editor of several Washington publications. She founded Politico Magazine and served as its editor through the 2016 election. The Man Who Ran Washington is the second book she has co-authored with Peter Baker.

Talmage Boston is a partner in the Dallas office of Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley & Norton, LLP where he handles commercial litigation in both trials and appeals.

The Man Who Ran Washington is a biography of James A. Baker III, former White House chief of staff and secretary of state—a man who “was the indispensable man for four presidents because he understood better than anyone how to make Washington work at a time when America was shaping events around the world.”  The discussion will include a focus on the traits that made Mr. Baker both a great lawyer and a most effective national and international leader.
