Political blogger debuts her first fiction novel, touching on the thin line between private and public in political life.
Washingtonians kept up with the political poise of the district at The Park Hyatt Washington in support of political blogger, Keli Goff‘s book party, debuting her first fiction novel, The GQ Candidate.
With the political world changing and presidents becoming pop culture icons in addition to world leaders, Americans have become increasingly enthralled with the lives of the nation’s leaders. Goff, whose work has been featured in Cosmopolitan and TIME magazines, touches on this sticky issue in her novel: how far is too far when digging into the personal life of political leaders?
The GQ Candidate highlights the life of an African-American presidential candidate and the effects the campaign has on not only his family, but his close friends as well. Goff also touches on the role social media plays in the invasion into political candidates personal lives.
Goff, who contributes to TheLoop21.com, frequently featured on MSNBC and CNN, and whose work is often found onThe Huffington Post, was joined by noted Washingtonians, including Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, CBS executive Christopher Isham and socialite Pamela Sorenson, to celebrate her book release.
