Former and current National Press Club members mingled alongside journalists including Margaret Talev during Connie Lawn‘s book signing party at the National Press Club, which was co-hosted by the National Press Club and the White House Correspondents’ Association. The signing recognized Lawn’s importance and accomplishments as a Washington reporter, as well as her most recent addition to her autobiography “You Wake Me Each Morning.” Lawn has worked for decades as an independent White House correspondent; she also blogs for the Huffington Post, where she writes candid pieces concerning many of the biggest White House events. Personal stories about her work at the White House and her experiences as a reporter at Audio Video News comprise the latest edition to Connie’s book, entitled “You Wake Me Each Morning – The Final Edition.” The autobiography includes her thoughts on the difficulties of transitioning into the new era of technology-centered news and a surprisingly frank account discussing one of the most difficult learning experiences of her career. But despite the serious topics, the book is meant to encourage readers to “never give up, be different from the crowd, and have fun.”

“You Wake Me Each Morning – The Final Edition” can be purchased directly from Lawn or on Amazon, Kindle or Nook.
