SLCL Presents Jason Kander--Ticketed Event

Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 7:00pm

Thursday, July 14th, 7pm CST
The J, Mirowitz Performing Arts Center
St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, SLCL Authors @ the J, the Westfall Politics and History Series, and Left Bank Books present An Evening with Former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander, author of “Invisible Storm: A Soldier’s Memoir of Politics and PTSD.

 

Jason Kander will be in conversation with Missouri State Senator Jill Schupp.

In 2017, President Obama was asked who gave him hope for the future of the country, and Jason Kander was the first name he mentioned. Suddenly, Jason was a national figure. As observers assumed he was preparing a run for the presidency, Jason announced a bid for mayor of Kansas City instead and was headed for a landslide victory. But after eleven years battling PTSD from his service in Afghanistan, Jason was seized by depression and suicidal thoughts. He dropped out of the mayor’s race and out of public life. In this brutally honest memoir, Jason Kander has written the book he himself needed in the most painful moments of his PTSD. We see him struggle with undiagnosed illness; witness his family buoy him through challenging treatment; and, giving hope to so many of us, see him heal.
