Conversation with former Congressman Barney Frank

Humphrey School of Public Affairs
*Book signing following the event
Former Congressman Barney Frank will speak with Professor Larry Jacobs about his new book, Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage. For more than four decades, Frank was at the center of the struggle for personal freedom and economic fairness. From the battle over AIDS funding in the 1980s to the debates over “big government” during the Clinton years to the 2008 financial crisis, the congressman from Massachusetts played a key role. In 2010, he coauthored the most far-reaching and controversial Wall Street reform bill since the era of the Great Depression. Please join us for a lively and candid conversation with a veteran of elected office.
Barney Frank represented the Fourth Congressional District of Massachusetts for more than three decades and chaired the House Financial Services Committee from 2007 to 2011. He is a regular commentator on MSNBC and divides his time between a home with his husband near Portland, Maine, and his apartment in Newton, Massachusetts.
